Protected Folder is a solution for protecting folders and files with a password, or setting a read/write deny. The program is perfect for a computer that uses multiple users. After it is launched, it is suggested to set up a password for access, after which the interface is opened for work. All files and folders that you want to restrict access to can be imported using a file browser or drag & drop, and batch processing is supported. Immediately after adding data to the list, access to them is blocked. In the settings panel, you can set options for accessing this data to hide or disallow writing/reading. In order not to forget the password, you can create a hint in the form of additional text. You can also create an exception list, set up effects, and set up an interface language.

A small amount of system resources is used for the program operation. Instructions are available, with screenshots for beginners. Removing the Protected Folder also requires a password to access it. Files blocked by the program will not be affected after deletion.

I like the concept of protection a folder. Protecting files is nothing new - I can already do that within Excel, Word, etc., but I have never tried to protect an entire folder and honestly don't know if that is even possible within the Windows operating system. I can see the usefulness of this product.

I recently tried Protected Folder software to secure files on my PC. I found the setup process to be easy and the software to be user friendly. It allowed me to quickly and easily setup secure folders and to decide which files I wanted to protect. I also liked that it had a stealth mode feature which allowed me to keep the software hidden from prying eyes. The password protection feature was also a great addition and worked well. The only downside to the software was that it was a bit slow to respond when I tried to access files from the protected folder. This was a minor issue though and didn't affect the overall performance of the software. Overall, Protected Folder was a great choice for protecting my important files and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a secure file storage solution.

It is easy to use and the setup process is straightforward. The password protection feature is very handy and it also prevents files from being deleted or modified. I also like that it allows me to lock folders without having to encrypt them. The only downside I have noticed is that it tends to slow down my computer when I open and close protected folders.
