Create password protected archive.

You can use free 7zip software to easily create backup archive.

All you need to do is:


#   Download and install 7-zip.
#   Open notepad and type following command:

"C:\Program Files\7-zip\7z.exe" -mx=9 -ppassword a "D:\Backup.zip" %1 

#  Save this file as backup.bat in Send To folder.[C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName>\SendTo\backup.bat]


where :-
"C:\Program Files\7-zip\7z.exe" = absolute path of 7z.exe
-mx = 1 to 9 level of compression. [Default = 5]
-ppassword = if you want this archive to be password protected add -pabcd after -mx=9. Where abcd is your password.
a "D:\Backup.zip" is archive path.

You can also create archive in usb drive by changing a argument.

Now right-click on any file or folder > Send To > BackUp.
Files you select will be compressed to D:\backup.zip file.
