I have just downloaded the latest version (4.4 build 188) and within the properties under compression I have selected Standard Compression (Zip2 compatiable) with a password set. I ran a sample backup to a hard drive and I see the zip file there but was not prompted for any password while trying to open the file. I was able to see the contents. Is there something I am missing or is the password not setup for locking down the files that I backup? Please help.

Hi,
You were able to see the list of files inside the zip or you were able to open and see the file contents?

After I did the backup which the program produced a zip file with all the contents that I wish to backup, I was able to right click and unzip to which the files where visable. I was wondering why I was not being prompted for a password to ensure those files where not visable after I attempted to unzip the folder.
