Hiding, locking, encrypting, protecting, and shredding sensitive data to keep them away from prying eyes is what GiliSoft File Lock Pro offers to do for you in a few simple steps. The app itself is protected by a secure password, and it offers you easy-to-use features to prevent unauthorized access to any of your files and folders, regardless of the disk (local or external) or the network they’re stored in.
The program’s main interface is simple enough to be of use for all kinds of users, though a bit repetitive and inconsistent in its design, which may lead to some degree of confusion. Options to hide and lock files are repeated across the main menu for local and external drives, while options regarding folders have been ignored completely, and you can only access them once you select a file-related option. As all buttons and windows look identical in all options, you may easily lose track of where you are at times.
Once you’ve found your way through the program’s interface, the actual file and folder hiding, locking, and protecting tasks are much simpler. As mentioned, the program requires you to set up a master password that not only will allow you to launch the app itself, but also to lock files in an external drive, for instance. Make sure you keep a copy of your password in a safe place and that you give the program an e-mail address where to send the password in case you forget it. more
