Protect Your Files/Folders with My Lockbox
A few days ago I wrote about a software called Folder Encryption which enabled you to encrypt and protect your Folder. However, if you are looking for some simple protection for your folders, then My Lockbox is just the software for you.
Once you lock the folder using this utility, it wont be visible to anyone. To view it, you will have to run the software, enter the password and unlock the folder. During the installation, it will ask you to enter the password and specify a “locker” folder which you want to protect. The interface is simple and easy to use. To lock a folder, just select it from a list or drag and drop it into the interface. The folder will not be visible even from MS Dos and will be hidden even to administrators.
One thing I don’t like about this is that it can Lock only a single folder at a time. But for those who keep there important files in a single location, this is very useful. The best thing is that it is also a freeware and is only 1.26 MB in size. Which other software’s do you use to protect your files and folders ?
