Editor's Review:

Important files and folders left unprotected can lead to theft, data loss and breaches of your privacy, costing you embarrassment, money, maybe even your job. To protect your data you need a data encryption software like Folder Lock.
Folder Lock from NewSoftwares is the best file encryption software we ever tried. Folder Lock can encrypt and lock files & folders, protect USB Drives and lock CD/DVDs. When start Folder Lock, it shows a "safe box" and you need to enter your password to enter. Inside the safe box, you can click Add Files & Folders/Add Folders & Drives button, drag and drop files, folders and drives in safe box and click Encrypt Now/Lock Now button to encrypt/lock. It's very easy to use. You can treat the visual safe box just as the real safe box in physical world. Files and folders in safe box is safe and can't be accessed even in DOS or under other operating systems!
