Can someone indicate good encryption programs, I have laptop with confidential information if it gets lost or stolen, malicious people can remove the hard drive and use this information.

Steganos.Safe,Rohos.Disk.Encryption,AxCrypt,Jetico BestCrypt,Folder Lock v7.
It was bad the case ... I did some testing with these but needed that when putting the HD in a case for example would be impossible to access.
These tools generate a safe that I can manage with passwords but every time I need to open the directory I would have to enter the password. The bitlocker would be ideal but it has some incompatibility with win7 and win10.

If the folder is open automatically for you, it will be automatically open to other users too. No point to encrypt the files/data in that case.

My notebook is a little old, but for the little I researched would be the only alternative to create an encrypted partition.

Hi Rogerio Luar,
here are several (in my opinion relative secure) possibilities (not complete buildup):

 

1.) "file" encryption :
-VSFileEncrypt:  (lokibit.com) (freeware and shareware)
-Fort Crypto Extension v5.0.0.0 (shareware)*
-Hyper Crypt v2.1.0.0: (hypercrypt.hexahedron.net) / (freeware) [website down now] 

 

2.) "container" encryption:
-VeraCrypt v1.24 final (v06Oct2019-sig): https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/Home.html (freeware)
-BestCrypt Container Encryption: (jetico.com) / (shareware)

 

3.) "whole disk" or/and partition encryption :
VeraCrypt v1.24 final (v06Oct2019-sig): https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/Home.html (freeware)
(!!!!!! but be aware of loss of data [if you are not an expert] / i´ve read very bad things in veracrypt forums...the answer is backup...backup...backup...!!!)

 

* medicine available

 

If you have special questions...ask me ! (but i´m an amateur)

 

Regards
