GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a handy application that offers a quick and reliable method to protect sensitive data on your computer. This powerful utility allows you to encrypt, lock, or hide any file and folder from your system in a fast and easy manner.

GiliSoft File Lock Pro can hide any files and completely conceal their existence from prying eyes. It can also hide entire folders or even drives, as well as lock or encrypt them. The locked files and folders can be accessed only after providing the right password that was previously assigned by the user of GiliSoft File Lock Pro. The application itself can be password protected to ensure that no one else can access it and change the implemented security changes.

GiliSoft File Lock Pro is also highly-customizable. It can be used to deny the read access or the write access to files, folders, and drives. This means that it can be used to protect data against complete access or only against being modified, deleted, or renamed.

Moreover, GiliSoft File Lock Pro is also very easy-to-use. Its simple interface can be used even by complete beginners without any problems. Furthermore, it supports drag-and-drop and it features Windows shell integration (its functions can be accessed from the right-click context menu of files in Windows Explorer).

To sum it all up, GiliSoft File Lock Pro is a really convenient data protection solution that helps you easily hide data from prying eyes or lock the access to confidential information.

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.
