Protecting Confidential Data from Unauthorized Access

No matter whether you use computer in your home or office. Anytime and anyone can access your computer data if you don’t have password protection or if you leave your PC not shutting down. At that time anyone can steal your personal and sensitive data via pen drive or any other removable storage. You can’t understand that but this kind of act is not acceptable to anyone. You can protect your data from stealing in some easy methods. Below those methods' description is given in easy words and in a nut shell.
1. By disabling your USB: To disable all your USB ports you’ll need to change USB registry. To make change to any of your computer registry at first go to ‘Run’ then write ‘regedit’ in empty box. Then hit ‘Enter’. After that you’ll see the registry page. In that page on right side you’ll find some menu. From those menu, expand ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE’. Then expand ‘system’. Then expand ‘CurrentControlSet’. Then ‘Services’ and then search for ‘USBSTOR’ menu. Don’t expand that menu. Just click on it. Then some writings will be found on left white page. In that page you’ll find ‘start’. Right click on that and then click modify. Then in ‘value data’ section, write ‘4’ in lue of ‘3’. This will disable all your USB. After this, none can access your computer data in your absence. When you want to re-enable your USB drives, in same way go to registry editing page and make the value data ‘3’ in lue of ’4’. This will enable your USB again.

2. Using USB Disk Security software Using USB Disk Security is another easy way to protect personal data from stealing. Not all USB Disk Security software can protect data. Only USB Disk Security can perform this. You can get this software with crack from here.

If an error message comes,  click this link. After you click this link, a torrent file of this software will be downloaded. Click it. When windows prompt for option, click ‘Search the web for software that can open your file’. Then download ‘Final torrent software. After downloading and installing the software, open the torrent file that contains USB Disk Security software with final torrent. It will download the zip file that contains USB Disk Security with crack. Install the software and you’ll see that your software is a trial one. Exit the software. Then open the crack folder. There you’ll get an application named USBGuard. Copy it and paste it in the folder where you installed the main software. You can’t paste that at first. So rename that and paste. Now delete the previous USBGuard application again rename the crack USBGuard_1 to USBGuard. Now run it. Then you’ll find that your USBGuard software is fully activated. Now go to ‘Data protection’ and click ‘Lock’. To lock your USB you’ll need to run the software as administrator. By this way in anytime you can lock and unlock your usb drives without changing your registry.

3. Changing the security status of your partitions. It is another easy way to protect sensitive files. Just right click on the partition that contains sensitive files or files those you don’t want to share with anyone. Then click ‘Properties’. Then click ‘Security’. Then click ‘Edit’. In full control function click ‘Deny’ and come out from there clicking OK. Then check that the partition is inaccessible. To access the partition again in same way go to ‘Properties’, then ‘Security’, then click ‘Advanced’ and then choose any administrative method and then click OK. After that click ‘Continue’ and then you’ll get the section from where put a tick to ‘deny’ option. Now click ‘Allow’ on full control function and then return from there clicking OK.

These are all about data protecting. You can also use locker software. But here I’ve described the easiest methods of data protecting.
