Why do you lock your home's door and cupboards when you get out?
Why there are multiple protection software now ? even for USB, external drive,...etc?
Locking folders and files is important to protect them from intrusive (children, curious friends, but also if you forget or loss you laptop (or stolen) you will be "sure" that nobody will access to your video, bank statement, passport copy...etc.! That is, access to your folder in those cases will not be easy for non hackers!
Much more security is better than not enough, isn't it?
