DAYU Disk Master Free lets you create encrypted virtual disks to protect the sensitive information on your desktop, and control access. With this program, you won't need to worry about someone else finding particular items, and you can disguise your virtual disks in various ways to ensure complete protection.
The intuitive interface of this app makes it possible for users of all skill and experience levels to take full advantage of the program. In addition, there is a thorough Help file that explains how to use all aspects of the app. The three tabs across the top of the window provide access to features like creating a new file-hosted volume, starting and stopping the RAM disk, setting a temp path to the RAM disk, and restoring the original temp path. The image management tab also offers options for adding or removing existing image files to a list, selecting an image file to mount or unmount, and flushing the list of image files to refresh the data. In addition to these program features, you can also configure the app to open with a particular window size and minimize, as opposed to closing completely when you close the window.
If you're concerned about the safety of some or all of the information you keep on your desktop, this is a good program to try. It runs well, it's free, and its features are highly accessible.
