idoo File Encryption Pro is a powerful and easy to use file encryption software designed to help you easily lock and hide files on your computer in order to prevent unwanted access. idoo File Encryption uses 256-bit AES encryption to encrypt your files located either on the hard disk drive or any portable media such as USB drives. Using this software you can quickly hide files, folders or entire drives on your system, prevent reading of files as well as make files read-only where the file can be opened but cannot edited. idoo File Encryption can also monitor any number of folders for changes.
When you install the program you are prompted to choose a password. This password is needed to open the program and access it’s various tools. This is also the same password that is used to lock or unlock your files. When encrypting files, however, you are allowed to choose different passwords.
Locking and hiding files all occur from within the program window. You can also access these options from the context menu in explorer. Once a file is locked, attempting to open it displays a message such as this.
Files that are denied write ability are can be opened but cannot be edited. Attempting to edit such a file throws another error message.
From the messages it looks as if the file is corrupted or in use by another process. You might get a different message, but the point is – you aren’t asked for a password which can alert users to the fact that the file is purposefully locked or disabled. This will keep curious people away from further probing your computer.
