FileGuard 4.5



Digital documents may contain valuable information and protecting or getting rid of this information is not as easy as locking a piece of paper in a safe or feeding it to a shredder. This is where FileGuard comes in. It is a lightweight application with effective encryption and shredding capabilities. Its functionality is straightforward and easy to understand, so it should take only a few seconds to protect your important files.  You can lock and shred files. The application's functionality is straightforward, so you can perform these operations with only a few clicks.


FileGuard is a user-friendly and efficient software solution created with a sole purpose in mind: that of enabling you to secure the contents of sensitive documents, so no unwanted individuals can access them without your permission.

Appearance-wise, the application is quite simple and easy to understand, its main sections being organized into tabs, so you can work with the one you need.

As such, you can use the ‘File Lock’ or the ‘Secure Delete’ function, as well as adjust the functioning parameters of FileGuard from the ‘Settings’ tab.

In order to protect a file from prying eyes, the program resorts to the AES encryption algorithm. It lets you browse through your PC using the built-in explorer, then load the item into its main window. Folders are also supported.

To encode it, you just need to input a preferred password and confirm it, then click on the corresponding button. The source item is instantly turned into a EFF file, which can only be accessed and decrypted using FileGuard, by providing the correct key.

Moreover, the tool is capable of permanently erasing items from your system, thanks to the ‘Secure Delete’ component. It makes use of a 3-pass overwriting method, which decreases the likelihood of anyone recovering the document and accessing its contents.

Optionally, the application can delete the source files after an encryption task is complete. In addition, you can set an access password for working with FileGuard, to ensure no one can decrypt your protected documents when you are away from the PC.

In conclusion, FileGuard is a useful and reliable utility aimed to ensure your private documents are not accessible to anyone working on your computer, nor are they as vulnerable during transfer operations.
