    if you have vista ultimate- it's built in. If you have XP or other flavors of vista, there are dozens of encryption programs. Go to a good open source site like sourceforge.net

    remember that if the external device goes travelling (eg a thumbdrive), then any
    system to which you attach it will need the same software OR
    a compatible decryption capability.

    OpenPGP is also available for various platforms, eg Linux, Mac, PCs
