The Folder Lock is a set of seven tools that provide security for your data. With the help of this program you can encrypt files and folders with a 256-bit algorithm, make backups of data in online storage, as well as securely store data on removable media. The program also allows you to block files and folders, securely store your personal data, and permanently delete data that should not fall into the hands of third parties.
With Folder Lock you can quickly hide files and protect them with a password. All you have to do is drag and drop these files into the program. By opening the program, you can run the necessary files directly from the list without extracting them from the storage. Storage (or Lockers) is now dynamic, portable, faster and takes up less space on the hard drive. Several storages can be opened simultaneously and data can be moved from one storage to another. In addition, you can convert storages to encrypted executable files using the 'Protect USB/CD' function. Thus, access to the data can be provided even without installing the program itself on the computer.
In order to just hide the files, you need to drag and drop them to the list on the Lock Files tab. The files will no longer be visible in the file where they were stored. This is the easiest way to protect your files from unauthorized access. However, you can not only hide the files, but also encrypt them. To do this, go to the Encrypt Files tab. We need to create a Locker first. To do this, there is a step-by-step wizard where you need to specify a password, Locker location and its initial size. After the storage is created, a folder will open where you need to drag and drop the necessary files (to the folder, not to the program). This folder will open each time you open Locker.
Frequently asked questions:
How to uninstall the program? You can uninstall the program only by going to "Settings" and then clicking on the "Uninstall Program" button on the "General Settings" tab. Access to the program options is only available to users who know the password. This is done for the security of your data.
How to start a program if it is in Stealth mode? If the program is not displayed in the Start menu, in the Quick Start panel, on the desktop and in the list of installed programs, it can be started only by using the key combination. This combination should have been specified when you activated the Stealth mode. If you don't remember the key combination, it may still be the default one, namely CTRL+ SHIFT + ALT + 'Your Button'. In version 7.1.5 the default key combination is "CTRL + SHIFT + ALT +A".
Someone deleted files from the Program Files folder where the Folder Lock program was installed. What to do? Just restart the program installation. All files will be restored and the password to the encrypted data will remain the same. In addition, the activation of the program is not canceled.
