Free USB Disk Security is a small, free app developed by avdsoft that claims to keep your pendrives and USB disks safe and secure. The interface is simple and clean, with a shortcut icon created upon installation. However, to access the app's options and open the main interface, you need to click on the Free USB Disk Security icon in the notification area of the taskbar.
The app offers two main USB tools: a shield to protect you from incoming threats and a scan feature to scan pendrives once they are inserted. Additionally, there is an option to repair your system, which consists of basic tools already provided by Windows. The home button provides an overview of the app's services.
While Free USB Disk Security seems like a great idea in theory, it is very difficult to determine if it is actually doing anything useful. Scans are extremely quick, to the point where it is unclear if they have even been performed. The real-time protection monitoring also falls short, as the app failed to register the insertion of a USB stick.
Overall, while Free USB Disk Security may look good, it is hard to rely on its effectiveness. It is recommended to use a standard antivirus program instead.
