Encrypting your stuff will still make your dad ask why he cannot access it.

Is he computer savvy, your dad? If not, you could simply make the folder hidden (right click and select properties).

Buy a usb drive and only plug it in when you use the computer.

So what is it you don't want your dad to see?

And why did you join the Reaper forum and make this your first question?
