Folder Password Expert
Keeping files and folders secure is important, especially in a work environment when the computer is the main tool for activity. Folder Password Expert is a small tool that enables you to encrypt any folder on your computer.
Step-by-step guided encryption process
This is exactly the kind of software you need to ensure the privacy of your information, in case you are sharing a computer with multiple users.
The interface consists of a simple wizard in which you can select "Lock folders" to add one or more folders to the list (the "drag and drop" method is not supported).
Once you have set a password (optionally input a password hint), the respective folders will have a "restricted" icon and you can only unlock them by using Folder Password Expert.
Uses little of your system's resources
The software consumes a very low amount of system resources and, although it is simple to use, it includes a well-drawn help file that contains tutorials, snapshots and guides on how to input a strong password.
Clever integration in the context menu
Due to the fact that Folder Password Expert integrates itself automatically in the Windows context menu upon installation, it can easily be accessed. However, make sure to remember the password you have set and to backup your data because there is no way of retrieving the content found in that specific folder.
If you uninstall the application before unlocking your folders, you will not be able to access them by using any other third-party software.
To end with
The bottom line is that Folder Password Expert is an excellent tool for maintaining the security of your personal information and we recommend it to all users. It takes little of your time to install it and the guided protection process is more that enough to let anyone take advantage of this powerful application.
