GiliSoft File Lock Pro encrypts and hides any of your files, folders, and even entire drives in an efficient and simple way. To ensure that all your data is safe and shared with others in a trustworthy environment, the program uses 256-bit AES encryption algorithms and creates password-protected self-decrypting EXE containers that can be opened easily on any PC.

File Lock Pro provides various levels of encryption and data protection. Thus, it can either lock the selected files and folders and protect them with a password of your choice or hide them from sight, so that no one will ever know they are there (also known as “Stealth Mode”). Either way, the program itself requires you to add a password to it to avoid unauthorized users from opening it and unlocking your sensitive data. For further protection, File Lock Pro will ask you to re-enter this password after a certain period of inactivity, to avoid unwanted access to your files and folders while you’re away from your computer.

Locked files and folders remain visible for all users, but cannot be opened or read without entering the right password. This is also valid for entire drives, which can be blocked just as easily. This level of protection is what the program calls “Deny Read”. You can also “Deny Write”, which means that files and folders can be opened but not edited, renamed, deleted, or modified in any way without the corresponding key. 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.
