This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

TrueCrypt (which is open-source) is often considered one of the better solutions for this kind of task.

But it only provide transparent encryption, and the operations is a little complicated for a folder. I 'll have to mount the file and umount the file while I am not using the files. – Jichao Oct 17 '10 at 14:46
"I 'll have to mount the file and umount the file while I am not using the files". Yes, but every encryption software will require you to do some kind of unlock/lock; that's the nature of encryption. – sleske Oct 17 '10 at 15:27

Wel, if you could put what you want in a ZIP file, you could use AXCrypt
