GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a powerful and reliable application that helps you deal with the need to make sure that your confidential files are truly private and protected against prying eyes or unauthorized access. GiliSoft File Lock Pro does that by offering you the possibility to hide the sensitive files, leave them in plain sight, but lock the access to them, protect against have them modified by making them read-only, or even encrypt them with military-grade algorithms.

GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a simple-to-use application that comes with a neat and intuitive interface. Beginners can use this tool without any problem. Though easy-to-use, it's a feature-rich and comprehensive application that packs handy additional functions such as a folder monitor that lets you keep an eye of any changes performed to a directory's content without your intervention.

I like a lot the encryption function of this tool, as it lets you encrypt your files to an EXE self-executable package and carry them around with you anywhere you like, being able to unpack them with ease while they're safe and secure at all time, given that you're the only one that knows the password needed to access them. Anyway, the program can protect files and folders regardless of their location, may they be on an internal hard drive, flash drive, external USB drive, thumb drive, memory card, pen drive, or even network drive. Furthermore, there's also a neat file shredder that helps you completely and permanently erase files, beyond recovery. 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.
