Encryption refers to the process of transforming data using a special algorithm and making it readable only for the users knowing the key/password needed to decrypt the information. It is considered one of the essential methods of keeping data safe.
Generally speaking, encryption tools have the role of encoding the data so that it can only be unlocked using a specific key. Consequentially, only the users who have access to that key are able to view the data.
The utilities can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from protecting sensitive data such as email addresses, passwords and transactions to other types of information that you simply cannot afford to expose to the public.
Then again, you should know that one of the disadvantages of file encryption (also known as filesystem-level encryption) is the lack of metadata. In other words, timestamps or directory structure can sometimes be lost if the encryption algorithm is not chosen correctly.
