File protection is more of a necessity than a luxury nowadays. Data theft, both locally and remotely, is sadly becoming common practice. GiliSoft File Lock Pro offers you an easy-to-implement and use solution that can hide and protect files, folders, disks, and drives, both in local and external drives, with a unique high-security password.

All you need to think of is a password. And only once, as you can use the same password for all protection, hiding, and locking operations. The program offers differentiated routines for local and external disks, and that’s the only precaution you need to take when selecting the items to protect. Unlocking any of your locked items is just as simple – just key in your unique password and the file, folder, or disk will become usable again.

GiliSoft File Lock Pro comes a set of extra utilities designed to enhance its already high level of protection. You can monitor a folder of your choice and be notified every time something changes in it. The program’s File Shredder will allow you to delete any file or folder for good, making it impossible for any unwelcomed guest to recover your discarded data. Its new extension, Disk Wiper, will let you remove permanently all data from an entire disk. If you want to add an extra level of protection to your locked or hidden files or folders, you can encrypt them using the AES algorithm and save them as a GFL file or an executable EXE file that you can open in any computer. more

If you're looking for an encryption app with strong 256 bit encryption, File Lock Pro is an excellent choice. It has a very attractive interface that is intuitive, and easy to use. For that purpose, I really like this app. As far as hiding files, it works fine within the context of booting from your own OS, however, if you boot from a Linux USB drive, you can see all of those hidden files. Of course, this would take a user with a fair amount of knowledge, and it would be useless to them as long as your files are encrypted.
