    "Very Poor Program, Dreadful Support"

    March 29, 2007   |   By mjfitz

    Version: File Security Manager 1.7.5

    Pros

    None

    Cons

    In my opinion the software does not do what it claims. I bought two copies in case the free download was restricted, it wasn't, the program only works on a single pc, not across a local peer to peer network as they claim it will. I have now sent two seperate emails to their support desk asking for help and offering to pay for this support, these have not even been acknowleged. Very, very poor!

    "It's just an interface for cacls"

    December 10, 2005   |   By david_01

    Version: File Security Manager 1.1.2 build 86

    Pros

    It works, kind of... This program merely provides a windows interface for the command-line cacls program that is shipped with XP Home, and it succeeds in this task.

    Cons

    There is no XP-Pro equivalent allowing you to make a folder inaccessible to ALL other users (eg. like you can with "My Documents" in XP Home). I applied "deny" access to all other users and then hacked around it by creating a new admin user. And don't tell me to make all of my family into restricted users because then they can't run their games or the virus protection that I use.

    There may be a way around this, other than setting specific users, but you are presented with various groups etc and things like "NT AUTHORITY" entities which would be confusing to most people.

    I may be a bit unkind to the makers here... this type of security may not be possible under XP Home at all.

    I guess there is a program that handles security properly - it's called XP Professional but it costs a fair bit more!

    "It is unique tool for Win XP Home"

    September 25, 2005   |   By A3X_master

    Version: File Security Manager 1.0.1 build 743

    Pros

    It is not like ordinary utilities - disk, tweakers, managers etc. there are a lot of such tools but there are no programs like File Security Manager!
