    "Best Encryption Software I've come across!"

    May 28, 2010  |   By GarrettBurlew

    Version: Folder Defence Free 1.0.0.17

    Pros

    Very quick at securing files and or hiding them. Extremely user friendly interface.

    Cons

    Takes about 45-65 seconds to prepare for your first use.

    Summary

    I've used many other programs, but none of them compare to this one. It's very easy to use and works well.

    "Easy to use access blocker"

    April 21, 2010  |   By 56Plugger

    Version: Folder Defence Free 1.0.0.17

    Pros

    Remarkably basic , does its one and only job perfectly. Password protection is only at the level of opening the app, not opening every single file being protected, a convenience I like.

    Cons

    Does not default to protected mode when the app is closed. Be sure to turn protection on when you close the program

    Summary

    The application has one function: to block unwanted access to selected files. It has only four Menu tabs: FILE, to add or remove files, PROTECTION, to set protection level, SEVICE, to set your password, and HELP, for feedback and version info. It has only five buttons: ADD, to add afile to be protected, REMOVE, to remove a file from protection, PROTECTION, none or hidden or locked or hidden and locked or read only, ON turns protection on so that files cannot be accessed, and OFF turns protection off so that files can be accessed. Here's how it works: Click SERVICE and set your password. Click ADD and use the the programs browser link to select the files you want to protect. Click on PROTECTION to chooseyour type of protection. Click the ON button and the files are protected. Click the OFF button and the files are accessible. The only time you are asked for your password is when the program opens. There is no password protection at the file level; if the app is open and running, anyone can make your files accessible. Be sure to turn protection back on and close the app when you are finished with your work.

    "Works GREAT on 32 bit"

    March 15, 2010  |   By greeman

    Version: Folder Defence Free 1.0.0.17

    Pros

    Easy to use interface
    Small unobtrusive program
    Does what I needed

    Cons

    Cannot get it to work on my Windows 7 64 bit machines.

    Summary

    Would be a GREAT 5 star program if it worked on Windows 7 64 bit. Especially since that is the way everything is going now.

    Updated on Mar 16, 2010

    As an update, I received an email from Privacy-Care Lab support and they confirmed that this version of Folder Defence was for 32 bit only. They did say that they plan to include 64 bit support in a later release (no projected release date mentioned). I look forward to it, as this is a very useful program.

    Version: Folder Defence Free 1.0.0.17

    Pros

    The program has all the caratteritiche a fee but it is completely free.
    Protects data with passwords, has options to close, make invisible or both options and more.
    It works well and does not leave us on foot.

    nothing to tel about this.

    Summary

    The interface is very easy even for inexperienced users and with a few clicks we can close folders of many megabytes
    I recommend the program to all users really looking for a folder lock that works and does not contain spyware or Malaware.
