"Looks Pretty, but beware"
This program looks pretty and easy to use.
It is not actually very secure, and does not lock folders, it just hides them. This means there is a whole host of ways to access them still (either through Linux, or even via specialist folder browsing software on Windows). This is especially a bad point as it costs allot (maybe as freeware it would be suitable for kids or hiding stuff from inexperienced users). If you want to lock folders, use BCArcive as this actually encrypts your files safely.
