Best Disk Lock features a "smart PC locker" application, which is a virus resistant application that installs itself on your hard drive without your permission. Once installed, it works to delete or quarantine any malicious codes or files from your hard drive, including viruses. This anti-virus software locks your computer system from reading or executing files and programs that are written to your hard drive. In addition, it also prevents other applications from loading up on your computer because they will be unable to read the files and programs that have been previously prevented from loading. Best Disk Lock also contains an internet scanner which works to detect any malicious files that are trying to infect your computer.
One of the main complaints about some of the top brands of disk locking software is that they require you to be able to open your computer via a USB port in order to access your disks. This requirement of having to plug in your devices causes a lot of people to be hesitant to purchase such software programs. Best Disk Lock has an option of allowing you to turn your PC into a USB-attached PC by enabling the use of a Read Only File. This gives users a safer way to utilize their computers while still being able to make use of their disks. Best Disk Lock has received numerous positive reviews from its customers, and in fact continues to remain one of the best disk locking products on the market today.
