Hello everyone,

Can I get your opinions on this ?  I am a home user with Vista.  I have some
sensitive files (electronic bank statements, paycheck stubs, ...) that I
would like to store securely.

My Internet Service Provider is Comcast and they give 25MB of online storage
space to use for web or to store files.  I was thinking of using that space
to store these sensitive files, encrypted of course.

If this is an okay idea, what encryption program should I use ?  I am
willing to pay some money (free things are usually garbage).  I also heard
that encrypted files can be embedded in .doc or .mp3 files so that they don't
look like encrypted files at the first look.  Is this true ? If so, it would
be icing on the cake.

Thank you for your time and information,

Paul
