Advanced Folder Encryption helps you protect your files and folders by hiding, scrambling or encrypting the contents. The first two methods don’t ensure the maximum level of protection but they’re still effective. The problem is that a skilled hacker could get access to your information. Fortunately, the third method (AES 256-bit encryption) makes access to your data practically impossible if a strong password is used.

Besides the encryption tools, this piece of software also includes a file shredder and a simple partition hider.

The program’s interface is simple and organized. Contextual help and tool-tips offered throughout the application make it very easy to learn how to use it.

The utility keeps track of what files you protect and unprotect. Every time you open the application, a list with all the files that you have encrypted/hidden appears so you can quickly access them.

Overall, this is a great utility for protecting your important files. It’s very simple, easy to use and fast. The trial version allows you to test most parts of the program (advanced functions are locked).
