Many people are in the habit of storing confidential information on their computers. Information saved mostly include business details, credit card numbers, passwords, financial information, tax details, important official files and secret documents which are important enough to be protected from unauthorized access. From board meetings to family tree information, the reliance on computers and information management applications are ever expanding.
And when it comes to protecting data stored on computers, do not rely on basic protection features that come standard with Windows. One can either simply hide files and folders from snoopers using the 'Hide' feature of Windows, or store them in external devices to keep it on the side, unencrypted and unprotected! However, such measures do not usually benefit them in the long run, because the truth of the matter is that these 'hidden' folders and files can be very easily viewed by someone who knows his way around them. For example, if you select 'Show hidden files and folders' in Windows Folder Options, and uncheck the 'Hide protected operating system files' option, you can easily view the content of both the folders and the files.
Data security should not in any way be taken lightly. With the recent spate of events involving serious data breaches globally, you should consider protecting your data with serious thoughtfulness.
From preventing your documents from being accidentally deleted by your siblings; to safeguarding your company's data and information from negative elements; or protecting your files against malware - all these real life scenarios are the main cause of worry in an organization or a PC user in general.
Folder Protect is designed with all this in mind. It is a user-centered, policy-driven access control and password protection tool to meet your everyday data and information protection needs. Folder Protect is a highly customizable way of securing your data, in exactly the way you have always wanted.
You can hide data with Folder Protect including files, folders, PDF files, ZIP / RAR files and any kind of image files (jpg, bmp, gif) at once without taking too much time. The only way to access hidden folders is to give the exact path in Run, Windows Explorer or by using DOS mode.

I like the concept of customizing the security levels for each file, folder or drive. Mostly locking software do not allow you to choose among levels of security.
