    I would like to archive a folder and all it's sub-folders and still retain the directory structure. In addition I would like to put strong encryption on it. I can put a password on RAR archives, but the encryption is weak and can easily brute-forced. Also, I do not require the archive to be compressed. Does anyone know of any software that would do this? Preferably open-source ... on Linux or Windows.

    you can use this

    when you mount the drive just copy the directory to the new virtual drive

    save the file and you can put it on cd or whatever and it;s fully encrytped

    just enter your password and the file is mounted like a drive and you can go from there

    it's free

    I like "cryptainer" from cypherix, similar principle to egghead's suggestion. allocates space (u choose how much) as a mounted drive, can be used with removable media (flash drives,cd's, etc) easy to use, hard to break.
