    • Because computers must be shared, we can only set file permissions to protect files on your computer. For example, lock or hide these important files, or use a password to encrypt very important files. Locking and hiding protected files has a lower security level. Encrypting files with AES is relatively safe. Reinstall the system or use the recovery data software, all hidden or locked files will lose their protection. Only encrypted files can still protect files. This is because the encryption of the file is to convert the plaintext into unrecognizable characters through the program, and it takes some time to crack them.

    • How can we provide a full security to the data in our computer? Normally, we may hide, lock or encrypt those important files. However, it is not a fundamental solution. If our computer is lost or stolen, the data still faces the risk of being exposed. At present, file level encryption is widely accepted. However, this method allows unauthorized users to have some file names, access times, and even get parts of files from temporary and disk swap files. Full Disk Encryption adopts the encryption scheme based upon the Physical Sector level, it could encrypt all data on the hard disk, including the operating system. Unauthorized users cannot gain access to any files on the hard drive. In the encrypted disk, there are no files or file names which can be seen without inputting a password.
