Editors' review

USB disks let you add unlimited storage to your desktop or laptop (especially laptops!) for movies, songs, images, backups, and other bulky data. USB thumbdrives and portable storage devices let you carry gigabytes of data with you. The USB interface means compatibility with almost every PC. And here's the problem: huge capacity, total portability, universal compatibility, and absolute indispensability work together to render your USB disks and devices especially vulnerable to viruses and other malware. USB Disk Security from Zbshareware Lab is an effective solution for securing your USB disks and data. This easy-to-use shareware is widely compatible with antivirus programs and other security tools. It's free to try, but the fully licensed version comes with lifetime updates and support.

Software tends to look like its type: media players, graphics apps, and e-mail clients usually look like media players, graphics apps, and e-mail clients. USB Disk Security looks like an up-to-date PC security tool, with a colorful and stylish yet professional-looking interface, clearly labeled buttons, and file list views. USB Disk Security incorporates several tools, including USB Shield, with real-time monitoring of USB drives; USB scan, a malware scanner optimized for USB drives; Data Prevention, which consists of the USB Access Control and USB Drive Control tools; and Safe Sites, with a URL Scanner and a Safe Web Navigation feature that sets the program's LinkZB page as your browser's home page. USB Disk Security also bundles some useful System Tools: Disk Cleanup, Repair System, and Autostart List. Unsafe and deleted files are moved to a Quarantine directory. The Settings menu is simple: just a password feature and language menu. But the Help menu is extensive and clearly written as well as illustrated with many screenshots.

We use a lot of USB disks and drives for a lot of different types of data, and we've used many utilities designed to protect them, but never one as powerful and capable as USB Disk Security, or with as many extras. If you like USB Disk Security, the registration cost is a small price to pay to keep your drives and data safe and secure.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of USB Disk Security 6.2.

    "ANOTHER MISLEADING REVIEW!"

    August 05, 2013   |   By AvidReaderCanada

    Version: USB Disk Security 6.4.0.1

    Pros

    Sounds promising, at first.

    Cons

    The software description sounds great until the last sentence: "If you like USB Disk Security, the registration cost is a small price to pay to keep your drives and data safe and secure." Again, if you have to pay, it's not FREE!

    I've check the developer's site and nowhere does it state the cost of registering their only product. All is says about this is when you click "Learn More" is under the last heading:

    Free updates
    Other antivirus products should be paid for updates every year. The USB Disk Security keys are lifetime. You receive all future program updates free of charge.

    Summary

    Another unprofessional review. Stating something is free when the review was obviously aware there IS a cost involved is, to me, fraudulent.
