PROBLEM: iFolder doesn't encrypt offline files. This is by design. It does encrypt the connection however.

SOLUTION: iFolder functions by using a real directory and syncing that directory. With XP just rightclick the properties of that iFolder > Advanced > Encrypt contents to secure data.

This trick sometimes has one drawback. The files can be synched encrypted and reside encrypted on the server. This can be overcome with a better recovery key procedure. Just combine your structure in the organisation of your encryption keys and recovery keys.
