AxCrypt is free, easy to use and strong file encryption for Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista, integrated with Windows Explorer. Encrypt, compress, decrypt, wipe, view and edit with a few mouse clicks.

Why do you need encryption? In two words: privacy and confidentiality.

As private persons, we nowadays store lots of information on our computers that is not necessarily secret, but just simply private. Many of us also at times have the need to use employer-owned computers and servers, as well as public servers, to store such information. It might be copies of electronic invoices, private letters, your CV etc.
