    Don't know if there is any size limitation, it's been a long time since I used the program. All I can say is try it and see.

    it seems that they encrypt files one by one rather then just encrypt the folder it encrypts each file in the folder instead of just encrypting the folder.

    Is that a particular problem? I believe there's a means of doing it within Windows if you have XP professional, but it doesn't work for home.

    20 uses. If you want a decent program to encrypt folders though, expect to pay for it.

    Depends on the software. That info will be contained within the program's documentation.
