What is compress file?

Question

You recently answered a question about encrypting files for security in MS XP. I followed the advice given on the website. However, when I get to "encrypt or compress attributes" the "encrypt files" section, the check box, was grayed out, unavailbale. That happened for MS Word individual files, as well as folders. How come? What's up?

Thanks!
