Folder Guard 9.1
Intuitive interface lets you quickly accommodate
Not much effort is required to deploy it on your system, and after this is done you can bring up the main window. An update, flat feel greets you, with a large workspace and upper toolbar, as well as side panel being home to all available features.
Easy way to protect folders
Like the name suggests, you can keep your folders, and not only, easily protected under the custody of Folder Guard. Dragging desired items over the main window is the easiest method that triggers a wizard, taking you through a series of steps. It lets you choose the type of protection and its related settings.
More security tools to work with
In addition, you can set visibility to empty and hidden, as well as the possibility to modify permissions either to read-only or no access at all. This can be done with any folder even from removable storage devices.
Restrict multiple file types
The application lets you browse the content of your hard disk drive through its integrated file explorer for enhanced ease of access. Moreover, you can switch to a view that only displays protected folders for better management.
A useful feature lets you handle filters. For example, you can set all files of a specified extension to be inaccessible or protected with a password of your choice.
To end with
The bottom line is that Folder Guard is an application you might want to keep around especially if more people are using the same computer. Its ease of use and power of available features make it suitable for both at home and work environments, offering that extra sense of security you need.
