Lock, Encrypt and Backup your files Folder Lock is an easy to use, yet full-featured, software to lock, encrypt and backup your sensitive files and folders. The program uses 256-bit on-the-fly AES encryption to create password protected containers ("Lockers") that you can use to store your important files. While your data is locked, it is hidden an inaccessible to all other users. Once you unlock a container, you can access your protected file just like any others. Since the decryption process takes place in memory, all your data remains encrypted even while you are accessing your files. The program can be configured to automatically lock your data containers if you step away from your PC. Folder Lock also lets you convert your encrypted Lockers into portable containers that can be copied to a USB drive or CD/DVD media. The portable Lockers are self-decrypting and can be unlocked on any PC without the need to have Folder Lock installed. Other features include an option to lock and hide individual files, password protected wallets to store your logins and passwords, an integrated file shredder for secure deletion of you data, protection from hack attempts, and more. Folder Lock also offers a "Lock Files" feature, which allows you to quickly hide selected files, folders or drives from view. However, it should be noted that this feature will only hide and lock your files and folder while Folder Lock is running. If you access your file system from a boot environment (e.g. Parted Magic), your locked items will be unprotected and freely accessible. Copyright

Adequate quality if compared with price 5 stars by jamesrichard067449 Feb 23, 2018
The best part is that it is least complexed. This software is dependable in terms of data security & can be managed by the not-so-tech-savvy-users like me. show Review details
A little pricey 2 stars by edwardgudz529 Feb 28, 2017 (Read all my 7 reviews)
Good program but 40 good? not at that price. There are freeware options that will do the same for you. show Review details
The interface is what strikes the most 5 stars by yassertariq Dec 16, 2016 (Read all my 90 reviews)
The interface is what strikes the most; extremely easy and logical. Especially designed for the novice. The feature that impressed me the most was the ability to create 4-GB 'portable' self-decrypting 'containers'. Highly recommended, although the price is on the higher end when compared to the freely available VeraCrypt. show Review details
