PC Vault is a shareware program that acts as a bank vault, or safe, where you can keep you private information or files hidden and secure. Everything in the vault is protected with an advanced encryption, and requires a password (your password) to open the vault to access the information. Files and file structures can be added to the vault by a simple drag and drop operation. It is also possible to create directory structures, add notes and password lists inside the vault. To open a file, just double click on it inside the vault. The program can be installed on your local hard drive or on a USB flash disc. Using the program on a USB flash disc can be very useful since you might want to protect your files and make sure no one can access them even if your flash disc is lost. Version 1.5 added support for 256 bits encryption (unregistered versions can now use 64 and 128 bits).
