    Here's what I would recommend:

    For encrypting folders or large amounts of files:
    Paid - Bestcrypt 7+ (
    Free - PGPDisk (
    Free - FineCrypt (

    For encrypting files:
    Free - FineCrypt (
    Free - Microsoft's EFS (Built in)
    Free - PGP (version 6)
    PAID - PGP (version 8)

    For higher security:
    Crypt Card -

    For normal access control:
    IBM SmartCard Security Toolkit (both an encryption/decryption package
    and access control requiring a smart card and pin to boot the system)
