Well ..I'd say use NTFS partitions and file permissions for such security.

well, i just started using it 4 days back. till now i didn't have any problem. its really secure, i think because nothing works out to decrypt the file/folder. and i use NTFS.

but keep in mind one thing before u convert to ntfs that u cannot shift back to FAT32 without formatting that drive. Also i wud say the best encyrption s/w is Cryptainer LE/PE/ME (LE is freeware while PE & ME are paid versions).

well, i just noticed. my windows crashed today and i reinstalled it. and now whatever folders i had locked with folder lock have appeared again. so the lock is opened as soon as the software is deleted. :(

Just take ownership of files!


I've described in detail below:
1. ensure you're logged in with admin rights.
2. Folder options >> remove tickmark from "Use simple file sharing"
3. Now right-click your locked folder, go to properties, Security tab.
4. Click "Advanced" at bottom of window, go to "Owner" tab.
5. Choose username, click Apply to take ownership & then change any permissions you want.
:)

Download a few gigs of NTLM hashes, then a password recovery software can try recovering the key without computing every key.
