You should find this in the winzip programs folder - first make a normal zip then convert to a self extracting zip which gives the option of a password.
Alternatively copy your data to a CD w/r.
I have another question re: security of personal data and document files. I have windows xp Home edition and when my computer goes into the repair shop, I am always asked for my password, which in turn gives the technician access to all my files.....and also my email in outlook express. Is there a way that my private files remain private without everyone reading them?
I have tried to put my document folder into a win zip file, but it doesn't work.. because I can't put a password on the zip file.
Any suggestions please?
