    Any best lock folder software ?


    Hey guys,

    I was using Hide Folder like some years ago and it was good. Today, I installed it and its not good anymore! I want to know if there is any good lock folder application for Windows 10 ?

    Regards.

    You want to hide these folders or password protect them or both?

    Hiding never really works but if you want an password protected encrypted container you could look into this VeraCrypt - Free Open source disk encryption with strong security for the Paranoid

    Have a look at File Lock Pro. I only needed to use it briefly last year, but it worked fine that time.

    WinRar: You could put the folder insider .rar archive and password protect the archive.

    I want to lock folders so no one can enter it.

    I know about WinRAR. Read properly before reply! I said I want to lock folders so no one can access it!

    You could change NTFS permissions and encrypt the folder and contents

    I want to lock folders and not to encrypt because I will go to some office where I have to open my laptop and when I come back to home I want to use those folders. So all I need is lock folder.
