I store most of my docs on an external drive and was wondering if it is possible to password selected folders,and how to do it.

That is the easiest way I have found that is free.

You could use Dekart Private Disk Light, it doen't protect individual folders, but instead creates a virtual encryped drive, in which you store data.
Once you enter the password you use the drive as a normal drive.
I have been using it for ages and it works very well and is easy to use. I presume your external drive uses fat32, so you will be limited to a maximum virtual drive size of 4GB.
It's freeware, 280k download.
Just don't forget your password..........
