According to here:
http://www.oraxcel.com/projects/encoffice/help/lp-zip.html

When you click on Encrypt from the Actions menu, it should ask for password
you want to use.  Are you sure you are using WinZIP or could it be WinRAR?

Disaster,

I tried zipping the file with winzip but saw no option to create a password 
to protect it, I tried clicking on encrypt, but no choice for password there

either.  Maybe there is something at the website that will let me choose a 
password I dont know.

Hi Disaster,

I have winzip.  Are you saying I should zip and password protect my files
using winzip and then upload the file to the free storage site?  Is that how

I password protect the file from everyone seeing it?

thanks,
christy
