MyLockbox recommended in the article is a nice piece of software, but, unfortunately, you can lock only a single folder with it. To lock more folders, you will still have to get free open source TrueCrypt or shareware Folder Password Expert.

As the above person says i didn’t get much success while multiple folders using MyLockBox and also after the trial period it bugs me like anything. Alternative i would recommend is either Lock a Folder or True Crypt.
