You can never be too safe regarding private or sensitive files and folders. One of the most used and strong methods of file protection is encryption. Ukeysoft File Lock is a smart and easy-to-use application that can provide multiple levels of protection for your entire system.
If you are don't necessarily need to lock your files, you can use the "Hide" option to render them inaccessible to other users that may have access to your system. One great feature about the hidden objects is that they are not displayed in the search result and even the safe mode is not capable of displaying them.
Regarding the lock feature, any files or folders that are locked cannot be opened/viewed if the password is not provided. This way you are making sure that even if the files are coming into somebody else's possession, they are not going to access them without the password.
Ukeysoft File Lock can hide lock a single file/folder, an entire local disk, and even a USB flash drive. Also, any files that get moved to a protected folder or partition will automatically become protected by the same parameters as the parent folder, so if you need maximum protection for multiple files at once, the simple way to go is encrypting the whole partition/folder.
To sum it up, Ukeysoft File Lock is a smart tool that can efficiently hide your data as well as locking it under a password. File, folder, partitions, and removable devices are not a match for this app. Due to its ease of use, the tool is recommended to both experienced users and non-technical ones.
