With uncountable bits and bytes flying all around you and data transfer taking place at record bandwidth, important and confidential files and folders require a robust level of protection to keep you safe from illegal access by intruders and information spies.

Files and folders that are left unprotected can become a direct victim of theft, loss, and breach of privacy and confidentiality. This can leave you in dire consequences! Given the omnipresent threat of physical theft or loss, data security is more important today than ever before. Thanks to today's promotion for Windows, you can meet all of your data security needs with a small but powerful software application called Folder Lock!

Folder Lock protects your important data by locking it, hiding it and encrypting it with an unbreakable data protection algorithm. With the power of Folder Lock's seven security tools in your arsenal, you'll be able to lock down files, folders, and entire drives, safeguard your personal data in Wallets, shred files securely, and cleanse your Windows usage history. No other security program gives you the broad spectrum of features that are included in Folder Lock, such as app-level password security, hack security, auto protection, and even a stealth mode - compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms.

For encrypted storage, take advantage of Folder Lock's 'Lockers', which now support encrypted storage in network shares and servers for use by multiple authorized users. You can even use Folder Lock to convert any locker to an encrypted executable file that can live on a USB flash drive or CD for maximum safeguarded portability! Of course, you always have the option of having Folder Lock automatically back up anything that you place into an encrypted locker! And don't forget - lockers can't be deleted from the PC that has Folder Lock installed, nor can Folder Lock itself be uninstalled without the correct password!

Jul 14 at 4:55am Copy Link
Ahmed User No, but if you have lost your password we do have a password recovery tool that you can use to get that password back.

Nelson Carvalho Sorry my English.
1) I can block the use of a pen drive, forcing the use of a password to unlock?
2) The purchase of the license allow me to use this feature in all my flash drives or a license is required for each pen drive?

Ricky Rick @ Ahmed User

You said: " ... if you have lost your password we do have a password recovery tool that you can use to get that password back".

So - are you saying FolderLock has a "backdoor" per se?

Other similar softwares say if you lose/forget your password you are out of luck because the Developer has no way of getting into your encrypted files without the user's password.

An example of one such program is RoboForm. They say if you lose/forget your password - there's no way they can help you recover it.

It would "seem" (I'm not accusing) that Folder Lock is maybe in ka-hoots with the US Govt as they (the US Govt) want any way they can to be able to break into people's privacy ... and especially when it comes to Encrypted stuff/files on a Computer. They absolutely want developers to have backdoors available to them..

Does Folder Lock in fact have a backdoor - or is your tool to recover a lost/forgotten password simply an OPTION during or after installation that would allow for such a recovery tool to work?

I have another program (I won't name) that gives an OPTION during install to allow for lost password recovery. If you check the box during installation and lose the password they can recover for you. If you don't check the box and then forget your password then you are out of luck and that particular developer can not help.

Hopefully Folder Lock works similar to the forementioned which gives a CHOICE during installation as to whether a person wants recovery available or not - otherwise I am not interested in spending money on Folder Lock which would allow it to be cracked in to.

bvssunnydale I've been using this for a few years and I think it's one of the best and most useful programs ever (they've even let me transfer to another cpu once the original install computer crashed on me). Excellent product and excellent support.

Mats Thell Hi all,
This is my story with Folderlock.

I have been using this application before, for the "Portable Lockers" functionality. (Load an encrypted storage area direct from USB, only Local administrator access was needed).
But I got some strange Blue screen of deaths, which is not acceptable in my view. so I contacted NewSoftwares Support and I was total ignored by them (Michelle).
I had found a bugg and recorded everything on a youtube video for them to view but nothing was intressting for them.
Im myself a developer and have been working with other companies with similar issues. This was the only time I have been total ignored on my requests.
This is not acceptable from a customer point of view, so all I could do is to find another similar functionality.

I do like the function in the application but when I try to use this professional I need to have some guarantees that it works as expected, otherwise I should get some attention on support requests.
But none respect to customers or their needs from this vendor.

This was one year back, I have no Idea if this has been fixed as I do not use Folderlock any longer.
And I dont want an angry customer when using Folderlock's Portable Lockers functionality on there server with an outcome of server crashes.

I hope this has been fixes and NewSoftware have been made changes in theirs customer care/support organisation and they now have an great product.
If NewSoftware wants to contact me to straight out the issues, Im all open for that :-)

Thanks for reading,.

singularity I have had a bad experience with this software. I encrypted some files and an *.flk file and I mistyped my password while encrypting it. Lost all files in the flk archive and it is sitting there. Is there anyway i could get them back? If yes i would buy this again
