Today we're going to talk about password protecting ZIP files created via Windows. This is a basic tip, but I've had a few people e-mailing me asking how to do this so here we go...
First create your zip file by using the "Send to" feature. Once that's done open up the zip file and click on the File Menu and select "Add a Password...", that will pop open a new window. Now simply enter the password you'd like, confirm it and you're set. When someone opens up that zip file to recover data they'll now have to enter a password first before they can copy anything over.
