Folder Password Lock Pro is not just about protecting, encrypting, locking, hiding, and password-protecting folders, but also files on any disk, internal or external. This professional protection tool needs only one password to lock all your files and folders, a password that can be sent to you by e-mail in case you forget it.
The entire program is fairly simple and straightforward, with all the main functions neatly organized on a side menu. There are different locking and hiding options depending on where the files and folders are located – you can lock, hide, protect, and monitor files and folders on any hard drive, but on an external drive you are only allowed to lock and hide any file or folder. Besides, on an internal disk you can also lock entire partitions.
The other main functions on the side menu include Share Folder (for you to lock any shared folder), Common (with utilities like a file shredder or “safe delete” for files, folders, and partitions, or an “encrypt file” option to encrypt to GFL or EXE any selected file), and Settings, with even more utilities, such as an exclude list, the option to change your master password, settings to tell the program how to act in case someone enters the wrong password repeatedly, and settings to define how the invisible or stealth mode should behave.
All in all, Folder Password Lock Pro offers you all you need to lock, hide, and protect your most sensitive information in a simple and efficient way, regardless of where the files and folders are located. This is not a free tool, but it has a price tag that those worried about the security of their data will surely find reasonable.
