File & Folder Locker
No measure is “too much” when we’re talking about the security of your files and folders. File & Folder Locker is a small program that can help you prevent unwanted access to certain locations on the computer.
A master password needs to be set
The app has a compact interface that hosts all necessary options to secure the documents and directories.
When it is first launched, the program requires that you input a master password. Once this is provided, the app doesn’t ask for it again until the app is launched again. However, take caution not to leave the main window available when leaving the workstations, because you risk of compromising content.
Only manage files through the app
As mentioned, the program was designed to lock any files and folders on the computer. In order to perform any of the actions it is required to browse for the desired files. After the item is locked, clicking on it doesn’t work anymore and it doesn’t prompt you to enter a password. Thus, the only way to lock and unlock an item is through the program’s interface.
Secure entire disk drives
Another feature that comes with this tool is locking and hiding the disk’s partitions. In order for any of the changes to take place, you must either log out of the account or restart the system.
The program only works with NTFS drives. Thus, if the drive is in FAT32, the app lets you convert it straight from the interface.
To end with
All in all, File & Folder Locker is a nice tool that is sure to come in handy. Inexperienced users shouldn’t have any troubles while installing and customizing the program, thanks to its intuitive layout and the overall simplicity of the task.
