Editors' Review

These days, security seems hard to come by. With spyware, hackers, and others all trying to look over your shoulder, sometimes you need a little peace of mind. Personal encryption software is a good step toward protecting your data, and Best Folder Encryption just might fit the bill.

The interface is simplistic and not terribly attractive, but it does have a set of skins to choose from. The fact that you cannot resize the main window is needlessly annoying, though. There are several functions common to this type of app, and they seem to work well. And we like the Explorer context menu integration, although the Decrypt option was present even on folders that weren't encrypted. The Security and Optimization settings were also interesting, offering the opportunity to prohibit certain system functions (like Task Manager) from running, as well as offering the chance to set some built-in, but typically hidden, system settings. Portable-mode encryption created standalone self-decrypting files that worked well.

The program was stable and responsive with our test data set. Some features were limited in this trial, and after 30 encryptions the encrypt feature supposedly stops working (but decrypt still should). Install required a restart, and uninstall left the install directory behind. Despite not knowing exactly what encryption algorithms it uses, if you're looking for something to protect your data, this program should do just fine.
