When it comes to protecting data, amateurs usually store their files in a deep folder structure, hoping that no one would have the patience to navigate through such a thick layer of folders. Advanced users prefer to encrypt their personal files with specialized applications, such as VirtualSafe. This particular application can be used to create virtual safes, as the name implies, in which you may keep your important files. Once you store your data, you can close the safe, to encrypt and hide the files.

VirtualSafe is free to try for 14 days. Apart from the time limitation, the trial version doesn't have any restrictions, so you can evaluate its entire functionality. The software can be installed in less than a minute, without encountering any confusing options. It works on all popular Windows platforms and it won't overuse your computer's memory or processing power.

Virtual safes are listed on the application's main user interface, along with a few details, like their sizes, creation and modification dates and used encryption methods. To create a new safe, you only need to type a name, a password and select an encryption algorithm, on a small window. A selected safe can be opened by typing in its corresponding password and clicking a button, located in the lower region of the interface, where you can also find the option for closing safes.

Once you create a safe, you can browse it in Windows Explorer. Its location is quite difficult to reach, but you can access the safe instantly, from the application's interface. Additional features can be found on a different tab, on the right side of the interface. By default, the configurations files for each safe are stored in a default folder, but you can select a different one if you want to. The software also allows you to split and merge safes and shred any files on your hard drive.


You can store your personal files in password protected virtual safes. The application allows you to split or merge existing safes and assign different encryption algorithms.


VirtualSafe does not ask for a password when you launch it or when you attempt to remove a safe. While using VirtualSafe, you will never have to worry about other users going through your personal files.
