    I don't need all the files in my Home folder encrypted, but I do need some documents encrypted. Is there any way, short of creating a new account or moving things out of my home folder, to only encrypt certain folders?

    You can create encrypted disk images with Disk Utility and then put documents inside them. I do this for some password lists on my computer at work.

    Just create a new, blank disk image, set the max size you'll need it to be and under the encryption pull-down select AES-128.

    Hey thanks, that's a perfect solution.

    I would say "cheers" if i didn't hate that expression so much.
