CNET Editors' review
It's simple enough for the novice to use, but there's nothing simplistic about this system utility's hard-disk password protection.
The program's clean, easy-to-use interface holds basic command buttons across the top of the window and displays your PC's disk partitions. A wizard and extensive Help file ensure that you're on the right path to protection. The first easy step is selecting the kind of protection--boot or partition--and choosing the disk to protect. In addition to a 30-day trial period, the program has a restriction that prevents you from creating your own password. But no matter, we applied the default password, and the program worked perfectly, password-protecting our designated disks. At system start-up, we were asked to enter our password before our system would continue with the bootup process.
Despite the password restriction, we got a good taste of this program's capabilities. Novice and experienced users alike will feel safer using Disk Password Protection.
Disk Password Protection 4.9: a comprehensive suite of hard-drive protection/access restriction tools. Protect your disk/partitions with a password, ban all reading/writing activity, limit launch of specified files to authorized personnel only. Disk Password Protection 4.9 offers users the option to choose what kind of protection they need. First is the Boot Protection. When chosen, any unauthorized person will not be able to boot a computer without entering the correct password. The program also offers Partition Protection. Any person can chose to have one or several partitions where all confidential information is stored. When protection is activated, the partition will be invisible to the operating system and the disk space taken up by sensitive data will appear as free disk space. The Low-Level Protection option allows users to blocks all attempts to read/write to/from the protected disk. The drive itself will appear as if it were just manufactured and is not formatted to perform any operations. This protection works only for ATA-compatible disks and must be activated in MS-DOS.
