    Hi help :),

    Try TrueCrypt: http://truecrypt.org

    T r u e C r y p t
    Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows XP/2000/2003 and Linux
    Main Features:

    * It can create a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mount it as a real disk.

    * It can encrypt an entire hard disk partition or a device, such as USB memory stick, floppy disk, etc.

    * Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password:

    1) Hidden volume (more information may be found here).

    2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (TrueCrypt volumes cannot be distinguished from random data).

    * Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5, Serpent (256-bit key), Triple DES, and Twofish (256-bit key). Mode of operation: LRW (CBC supported as legacy).

    * Based on Encryption for the Masses (E4M) 2.02a, which was conceived in 1997.

    And do pay special attention to the link on Cryptography Products authored by Bruce Schneier in the middle of the webpage at The Data List - Encryption.
