I_Folder_Locker is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you encrypt your folders and protect USB flash drives by setting up passwords.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to encrypt your folders on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Minimalistic desing

It sports a clean and simple layout that allows you to carry out most operations with minimal effort. Everything is kept as simple and clear as possible, so the tool comes packed with only few dedicated parameters for helping you password-protect your folders.

Encryption capabilities

I_Folder_Locker gives you the possibility to select the folder that contains the sensitive information using the built-in browse button, so you cannot rely on “drag and drop” operations.

The program enables you to set up a password for each folder that you want to encrypt, so it doesn’t offer support for a master password. You are able to unlock the encrypted files using the unlocking feature bundled in this tool, so make sure you remember the correct password otherwise you cannot unlock the files even if you remove the software.

Since it doesn’t comprise any configuration settings, even rookies can master the process with just a few clicks. During our testing we have noticed that I_Folder_Locker carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

Bottom line

To sum things up, I_Folder_Locker offers a simple yet efficient software solution when it comes to helping you password-protect your folders. It can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
