Simple, Free CD Encryption

  User-DC593ADF-8DFC-41A0-B9DA42213177CA53 11:31 08 Nov 2010

I need to send a CD containing photos/videos to a family member abroad, and want to encrypt it.

The end user is not very PC literate, so I want the process to be simple, so that the user only needs to input the password to access the contents with no need to extract the contents.

Can anyone suggest some free software that can do it this way?

why not use the file transfer method available in most messenger services?


Thanks gengiscant for the Cryptainer link, I've had a brief 'play' and it looks as if that will work fine, just a shame about the 100mb volume limit.

johnnyrocker, unfortunately the file transfer method is not an option at this time.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Try Axcrypt click here;1

It's a doddle to use. Make your encryption self-extracting if the recipient does not have Axcrypt installed.

Most people recommend Truecrypt for encryption, but I find it a little complex and you have to pay for it.
