I'm looking for an app that I use on my external hard drive that I travel with to store and protect all my documents. Anyone know of any simple pieces of software that's not too expensive and is simple to install and use. I hate buying an app and having a boat load of functionality that I have no interest in using.

I've got a flash drive with a pre-loaded password protected app on it and it won't work with Vista so it needs to be compatible.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Same idea as other link I guess... just another option. A requirement on all laptops used where I work.

Look at mcrypt (Google it). Simple command line application which can encrypt/decrypt a lot of different ciphers. I personally like to use Blowfish.

You'll probably have to compile it.
