I have a lot of "adult" material on my computer, as well as financial data, browsers with saved passwords, etc.  This stuff is saved under my user profile (it's a Windows machine), so theoretically nobody could get to it unless they have my logon password.  But people are clever, especially nieces and nephews who visit occasionally,  Is there a more secure way of locking down these files or directories?  Years ago I used something called Norton Encrypt, which locked individual files with a password, but it's rather clunky to use.

A second question involved portable drives, such as USB sticks or external hard drives.  Any thoughts on good ways of locking those up?

Thanks muc!

a) use a separate partition or hard drive and encrypt by Win Bit Locker
b) use Vera Crypt to generate encrypted file container(s)

It's been a few months since you posted, but it would be best to not allow anyone who is a minor to use your computer if you have porn on it.  Even if you have it password protected or encrypted, there may be ways it could be accessible.  For example, the software  you use to play videos may keep a history of videos watched and even have video in a cache.  Don't take chances with something like that.  Kids these days are smart about stuff like that.
