    "Not for Windows 7"

    March 25, 2014  |   By jethropenny

    Version: File Secure Free 1.1

    Pros

    It does lock the USB drive and unlock it again

    Cons

    When you close the program and then plug in the drive it asks to format it. I tested it and the drive is able to format however then the lock and all data is lost on that drive.

    Summary

    OS details should be changed to reflect these issues asap.

    "Exactly what I was looking for. Works Great."

    February 7, 2013  |   By tonyspicer1966

    Version: File Secure Free 1.1

    Pros

    I have tried another encryption program, but this was exactly what I was looking for. Works Great, and extreamely easy to use.

    Cons

    After you close the program, you have to open the program through the start menu or icon, then you have to click on the icon at the bottom right of your screen to reopen the program. It would be better if we could skip the last step, and have it open when you click the desktop icon or open it in startup.

    Summary

    Still a great product, esecially for the price (free). I love me some free stuff, and the extra click is not that hard to do. That last step might confuse some people into thinking that the program can't be reopened, and that they lost thier files.

    "Very simple, very effective"

    August 17, 2012  |   By Lumpy_Operator

    Version: File Secure Free 1.1

    Pros

    It give you a simple window to record the folder (or files) to encypt. Or go to the same window to de-crypt them (enter password). When you like, select the folder again and just hit Encrypt.
    It is very neat and simple compared to alternatives.
    Very few options - it just works.
    I leave the window open to remind myself that I need to Encrypt again (see cons)

    Cons

    The Status column against each folder should show if it is encrypted or not, but mine just shows "N/A".
    It would be handy if the status worked.
    It would be even handier if it reminded me I need to re-Encypt folders that are in my list.

    Summary

    I've tried a few alternatives. The simplicity of this makes it very attractive to me.
