    Re: Which is the best software in Windows to protect files and folders?

    There are many softwares available in windows for protecting your files and folders. The best among which I can pick is Secret Disk software. It forms a different partitions which will be permanently locked and can be used only if the password is given. Steps to follow to use Secret Disk software in windows as follows,

    STEP 1: Download the setup of Secret Disk from internet CLICK HERE!!
    STEP 2: Install it to your computer and start the program.
    STEP 3: Provide the desired password which you want to use to lock your files make sure your password is strong.
    STEP 4: Secret Disk will create a partition for your hidden files, now you can store the files which you want to lock in the Secret Disk created partition and lock your partition when you are done.
    STEP 5: To unlock the secret partition, just start the Secret Disk program again and type your password.

    Re: Which is the best software in Windows to protect files and folders?

    Dear friend,

    Have you ever heard about
    "BitLocker Drive Encryption" ?

    This is the best software ever developed to protect files and folders. This is developed by Microsoft and comes with Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate or professional version.

    To access this software:
    1. Go to Control Panel>
    BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    2. Click "Turn On BitLocker" for the drive you want to protect. This opens the BitLocker setup wizard.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    3. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

    Thanks!
