Hello, I use the Mac as my main computer. I just learned how to use the disk utility to create a password protected folder. It is a bit complicated.

I want to create a password protected folder, put it in usb drive and then give the files to somebody's secretary for her to forward the files. Using disk utility, I can only create a password protected folder .dmg which Windows users probably don't know what to do with it. Is there an easy way to create a password protected folder for Windows users to access?

If there is no freeware, how about free windows version of some software? Any recommendation?

Using the disk utility, it generates a password protected .dmg file. Can Windows OS recognize this file type? How can Windows users read the contents?
