Encrypting files and folders has never been easier. Protect Files makes it easy to protect your files, folders and documents with secure encryption and password technology; designed to provide a quick solution that guides users step-by-step in creating and managing encrypted spaces.

We live in an electronic world, continuously connected to the Internet, carrying flash memory drives with all our data everywhere we go; we use notebooks, removable disks and private files that are often more important than the devices themselves. The more information and memory supports we carry around, the greater the risk of someone getting a hold of them. We therefore need to protect our data.

That’s what Apimac Protect Files is for: it’s an efficient utility that offers a complete solution to this problem, providing a simple way to create encrypted spaces with the same level of security (AES – Advanced Encryption Standard) used by many governments around the world, such as the United States.

Apimac Protect Files facilitates this task with secure encryption. Specifically designed for those who want a dedicated solution, Protect Files guides inexperienced users step-by-step in the creation and use of encrypted spaces, which are managed through a simple interface that guides you in locking and unlocking documents and folders. An encrypted space is a password-protected space that can reside on your Mac’s hard drive, an external disk or USB stick. Safely store folders, documents, photos, videos, music, and all types of files to prevent others from accessing them. The space is displayed as a normal volume on the desktop. When the space is locked, its contents are super-protected. When the space is unlocked, you can move, copy and delete files like on any other memory drive.

Protect Files automatically optimizes the enclosed disk image to reclaim unused space (on portable computers only when the power adapter is connected).


Email SecurityBy default, Protect Files creates 128-bit AES Encrypted Spaces. However for even stronger encryption, the user may optionally specify 256-bit AES encryption in the applications preferences. Protect Files leverage Mac OS X technology to create disk images with AES encryption, which is one of the most secure encryption methods and widely adopted by many governments. See Security section of Advanced Encryption Standard at Wikipedia to learn more.

While expert users might prefer to use Mac OS X Disk Utility to create their own disk image files, this tool is aimed to users preferring a dedicated solution to guide them step by step in creation and use of the encrypted space.

The maximum size of a space created is 99 GB. This limit is used to prevent too long opening and closing of the spaces.

    Okay, then created a sparse bundle. Double clicked on it and entered password. Hmm, now what do I do with it? I guess I am missing the point of the app. Lets me create the disk image but I double click on it and nothing…

    I got exactly the same error – not good :(
    C’mon developer – help needed.

  3. adrianwilliams Says:

    I folled this and was able to open the .sparsebundle file.
    Maybe I need a little more time to check settings – Not an ‘out of the box’ solution tho’
