Now I see why he asked about a way to do it with GnuPG, since pgp does
it, and GnuPG is "the gnu alternative for pgp" (but I can't recall now
where did I saw that description of gpg...).

I read some years ago (when windows XP was released) that there was
some way to encrypt folders using windows... but if you had to reinstall
windows, there was no way to recover the encrypted folders... at that
time I didn't put attention, and now I just have the "don't trust
windows encryption" feeling...
Anyway, since Kunal Shah was talking about an external harddrive, I
would vote for TrueCrypt...
