So, if I understand correctly, you have data that is very much worth
protecting, but not worth very much?
Vista Bitlocker can do what you want to do for the local disk, but not the
network drive. EFS can encrypt your files and folders on both local and
remote drives, but transmits the files in clear-text if you aren't using
something like IPsec.
As pointed out, Vista won't do Bitlocker (or EFS) from certain SKUs, so you
may find that you have to upgrade Vista in order to protect your data.
How much is your data worth protecting?
