I have some file I want to store that I do not want to be readable with out proper software or conversion. I used to ZIP file until Windows 7 Started to scan the zip file and "Remove Viruses". The Files contain Sensitive Data that Only I should be able to read. How Would I Accomplish This?

    You can protect your ZIP files with a password. – SparedWhisle May 30 '17 at 6:35
  • Virus scanners can easily still "scan" the files inside – epicdig07 May 31 '17 at 19:01
  • @epicdig07 They can not. They can often see the file names, but that's it. – user416 Apr 15 '19 at 11:02

Use TrueCrypt (deprecated), or the newer VeraCrypt (which is based on TrueCrypt).

I found Internxt to be quite secure. Sync and pCloud are other alternatives
