If you want to protect the files on your computer in an easy way, Secret Disk provides a great solution. in the past, I’ve reviewed TrueCrypt but the use of this program can be overwhelming at best. Secret Disk is a much simpler solution and has you up and running in no time.

Please note: if you are trying to protect your files from a customs, or similar, inspecition, you may be required to enter your password. Thus, using a program like this is not a solution to hiding illegal information–don’t do it!

How to Use Secret Disk

To use Secret Disk, do the following:

  1. Start the program and select a passwordSecret Disk 1
  2. Secret Disk creates a partition for your hidden files (note: if you already have the X drive mapped on your network, like I have, Secret Disk will replace this mapping until you close the program)Secret Disk 2
  3. Now you can store your files on this partitionSecret Disk 3
  4. Lock your disk when you are finished with itSecret Disk 4
  5. Now the disk is locked, it cannot be accessedSecret Disk 5
  6. To unlock the secret partition, just start the program, click unlock, and type in your passwordSecret Disk 6
  7. You can delete your secret disk at any timeSecret Disk 7

This program is an excellent solution for anyone who is looking to protect sensitive files; download it below.
