Androsa FileProtector is a software security solution that can encrypt files and folders.
It is useful when multiple individuals have access to your computer, or when you want to send password-protected files via email, for instance.
The interface of the tool is clean and pretty intuitive. Importing files and folders into the queue can be done via the file browser, folder view or 'drag and drop' method. Encrypting multiple items at the same time is possible.
The list shows the name, status, version, size and location for each entry. Select one or more items that you want to encrypt and configure protection settings regarding the password and desired algorithm; you can pick between 256-bit, 192-bit and 128-bit Rijndael (AES), 192-bit TripleDES and 64-bit DES.
A key feature of Androsa FileProtector lets you create a self-decrypting archive (SDX). Additional privacy parameters can be set; therefore, you can scramble the name of the protected files, maintain the original last date of modification, as well as choose the deletion method between normal, deletion with overwrite and rapid secure deletion. Settings can be saved as default for further use.
Moreover, you can enable Androsa FileProtector to delete the source files when the task is done and to prevent existing files from being overwritten during restoration, as well as backup data. Evidently, decrypting the respective items is also possible and involves a simple procedure.
Androsa FileProtector packs a wide range of configurable program options as well, such as the automatic run at system startup, minimization to the system tray area, hiding passwords with asterisks, compression level adjustment and file size limitations, just to name a few. These preferences may be reset to default.
The program requires a low amount of system resources. First-time users may also look into a help file. Unfortunately, Androsa FileProtector has not been updated for a while. Otherwise, it provides a wide range of customization options for users who want to successfully encrypt files and folders.
