"Works exactly as promised"

April 05, 2005  |  By ksalerno

 |  Version: Folder Lock 5.2

Pros

Files that I want to keep confidential are easily both encrypted and rendered invisible in my locker. I love the fact that I can transfer the same small footprint program on my thumb drives so that if they should get lost or stolen, my information, files and pictures will not be compromised. So far after several weeks of use it's worked flawlessly. I found from the documentation that there is a way for more than one user to have their own lockers each with it's separate password. I use one to keep my eyes only information and a second with all my key information, finances, credit card accounts bank, broker and checking accounts for someone entrusted with the password to find in case of some dire emergency or serious accident. I found the program's customer service person to be very responsive when I had an installation question.

Cons

Only thing, which I told is being corrected, is the fact that I had to use my computer's regular font size and could not use the 120% size option since I have a high resolution screen.

"Decent Product, Zero Support"

April 01, 2015  |  By Georgewilliam1191

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

Works great on local drives

Cons

Does not work on network drives
Zippo, zero, nada support response to emails and no other way to contact them

Summary

As with most PC software, this product is pretty much a crap shoot. When it works it works great but if it doesn't you are left out to dry. I've written three emails asking installation questions and have not received a single response. In my case I spent the money for nothing.

"WARNING - DO NOT INSTALL"

March 21, 2015  |  By Slap_Shot_12

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

None. This program is so badly flawed there are no pros worth mentioning.

Cons

The program is very unstable in Windows 8, but the bigger problem is that you cannot uninstall the program without a master password. When you set that password during the install it does not tell you that, but once you set it if you forget that password there is no way to uninstall the software. Further, it runs a background application that hogs resources that cannot be turned off without uninstalling the software. Avoid at all costs - it is so bad I would almost consider it malware.

Summary

Virtually malware - avoid at all costs.
