Crte an encrypted safe for your sensitive filesYou may have sensitive files stored in your computer that you don't want anyone else to access. The Vault is a good way to protect them from prying eyes.
The Vault crtes a virtual safe for your files in your hard drive. You can have as many vaults as you need, ch one of them with their own folder structure – just like Explorer. The program supports four encryption aorithms (Blowfish, AES, Serpent and Twofish) and four types of hash functions (MD5 128, Sha 256, Sha 384 and Sha 512).

The Vault doesn't require installation. When you run it for the first time you'll be asked to set a master – which you should never forget. Then you're rdy to start crting vaults, adding folders to them and dragging and dropping any files you want to protect into the program's interface. You also have the option to check the encryption performance of ch aorithm and hash combination with a built-in test.
erally spking The Vault is a handy appliion but it may not be sy to understand for those who are not familiar with computer security. The fact that the program doesn't include any documentation doesn't help either.
The Vault lets you crte encrypted virtual safes in your hard drive to store and protect sensitive data, though it may not be very intuitive for beginners.

Hide files and folder so only you can access themSYSTEM VAULTSharing a PC is never a good id if you've got sensitive or confidential information that you don't want strangers, or even loved ones, to access.
My favourite way to protect myself is simply to crte another profile for other users on my system but this is not always possible if isn't working properly. In which case, one good option is to lock those files and folders that you don't want accessed by prying eyes. System Vault simply can't hide files and folders but it can require users to enter a before accessing them. It also allows you to remove common files or folders that are accessed from your MRU files on your PC so that anyone using your machine, can't see what you've just been looking at.
One word of warning though - if you install the program, uninstall it and then reinstall it again, your protected files are completely reset. This mns that anyone that rlly wants to access your files merely has to uninstall the program so it's a good id to use some kind of system protection system in addition to this program. However, the developers advise that to avoid losing your directories and files when re-installing the appliion in future you should export your list of paths and import them again on reinstallation.
A simple way to protect your files but be warned that it's not very secure any anyone who uninstalls it will have access to your files.
