Folder Castle protects your digital data from thieves and snoopers. It provides two levels of protection: you can lock away files and folders, or you can put them into a secure container called Secure Storage with on-the-fly AES-256 encryption. Secure Storage works in much the same way as an ordinary drive: you can mount or unmount it, defrag, or check for errors.

Once the file is locked away, you can be sure that it will not be seen in Windows Explorer or any other file manager even if the computer is rebooted in Safe Mode. For more peace of mind, you can enter into the Stealth Mode, which hides the presence of Folder Castle itself. To run Folder Castle or access Secure Storage, you should confirm your identity by entering the password.

Folder Castle has a standard layout that makes options readily and easily available. The program natively integrates into Windows Explorer, including context menu, toolbar and hot keys. It is fully compatible with Windows Vista and runs well on the new OS.

What's New:

The newest version allows you to quickly hide/unhide your all favorite folders and files through one command. Also for more security we have disabled hiding folders and files on portable HDD. You can optional enable this opportunity, but to protect data on portable drives we recommend to use the Secure Storage feature.
