What is a FLKB file?

Flkb file extension has Folder Lock Basic Locker file type, developed by NewSoftwares, which is associated with the "backup files" category.

Folder Lock – a program designed for encrypting valuable files – generates archives with this extension. These archives contain a set of files that can be opened only after entering the password. FLKB files have the NTFS file system formatting and can store files of any size. However, there are also Portable Lockers (archives with the .FLKA extension) that cannot exceed a limit of 4GB. Both these formats are often used for creating backups. FLKB and FLKA file extensions were introduced with the release of Folder Lock 7. The older version used files with the .FLK extension.
