GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a simple-to-use application that offers an easy and convenient manner of protecting files against unauthorized use and access. This simple yet powerful tool lets you block files either from being opened and viewed, or from being opened and modified. It also lets you hide files completely, concealing their existence from prying eyes. It can perform the same hiding and locking operations not just with files, but also with entire folders or even drives.

GiliSoft File Lock Pro is very simple-to-use. It comes with a self-explanatory interface that can be used with ease even by complete beginners. Furthermore, it’s neat, lightweight and resource-friendly. This doesn’t mean that it doesn’t offer any additional functions and features. For example, it provides a handy function that allows monitoring a folder for any changes.

Besides, the application can be completely password-protected, therefore allowing its opening and using only when the right password is provided. Furthermore, it can even be made completely invisible on your system, so no one will be able to know that this tool is installed on your computer and it’s used to make files to be locked or hidden.

It can also encrypt data using the reliable 256-bit AES algorithm, and the encrypted containers can be created as stand-alone self-executable EXE files, which are easy to be distributed around.

In an end note, GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a nice tool that makes protecting confidential files a really easy job.

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.
