When sharing your computer with friends or family members, you still do not want them to inadvertently delete or corrupt an important file, see your accounting information or other personal data. There are two ways to solve the problem: learn all ins and outs of Windows access rights management or use a utility to set a password on folders containing the data you do not want others to mess with.
Protect Folders is the utility designed for home and business users who do not have time to learn the profession of system administrator. It is an easy-to-use and effective program allowing you to protect your folders with a password in Internet Explorer or through a built-in intuitive interface (you run the program and click on the Lock Folder button, then you select the folder to lock and your password). Protect Folders supports the following operating systems: Windows Vista, XP, NT, 98, ME.
Protect Folders is a must-have software program when you plan to take your PC to computer service technicians or your laptop travels with you all over the world and there is a chance that it may be lost or stolen.
Protect Folders was designed with data safety in mind. The program does not store any vital information like passwords in the registry or somewhere else in Windows. The password checksum, which cannot be used to steal your password, is written into locked folders. Even if you have to reinstall Windows due to a system crash or a regular system upgrade, you can access your data after reinstalling Protect Folders. You can even plug your drive into another Windows computer, install Protect Folders and unprotect your folders there, provided that you know the password used to lock the folders. There is no way to break into protected folders by connecting the drive to another computer running DOS, Linux or any other operating system as the password is always required to open locked folders.
