Hi, I am using Windows 10 64 bit OS Home edition. I would like the simplest and safest way to protect entire drive or a PC. So that if I (for example die) it becomes impossible to reach my files. I don't care if it even comes impossible to me if I forget the password. I don't care if the laptop itself gets physically hacked, as long as my files are full proof protected. Is there such a way?

There are several third party programs available. I would recommend researching them to determine which one fits your needs.

Thank you. As a matter of fact protecting a single folder would be more than good enough. But it must be bullet proof.

Haha, thanks. I am just laughing at the name makes me laugh. Kasparsky is also the best. And dangerous. Vera is the Russian word for faith. And it scares me. Not Russians. The name of the program. Got a good download link?

It actually stands for three English words: belief, trust and faith. Heavy words. All three of them.

The word is very similar in all Slavic languages.

Haha, thanks. I am just laughing at the name of the program. Kaspersky is also the best when it comes to viruses. And also as dangerous. Vera is the Russian word for faith. And it scares me. Not Russians. The name of the program. Got a good download link?

The word is very similar in all Slavic languages. Like it says on every dollar bill or a coin "in God we trust". Ironically, somehow everybody stopped trusting God (no matter which religion) and started trusting the dollar. So when somebody (usually politicians) start the sentence with "trust me" they lose your trust immediately. Naming a program Vera may be a good marketing move, but it lifts my guards up somehow... Just making fun. I still need a good link.
