Windows 7: What is the best way to Protect a Folder?

What is the best way to Protect a Folder?

Hi All

I've read a few online articles on how to protect the contents of a folder. Bitlocker, 3rd party software and some cmd magic can also be used, but what is really the best/safest AND most user-friendly(the user being the administrator of that folder) way to protect/secure a folder? Also, that folder must be able to be uploaded to a cloud service such as google drive and downloaded on another computer and still be accessible by myself on the other computer...

Thank You

Dave,

The simplist way is to zip the folder using something like 7ZIP, and password protect it. Other solutions (e.g. portable TrueCrypt) are generally more complex.

Regards,
Golden
