If you need to beef up security for your data, KaKa Folder Protector can do the job. It's a utility that will password-protect folders on your computer by locking them. To unlock a folder, simply type in your password. You can lock as many folders as you want. KaKa Folder Protector can lock folders that are stored on flash drives and external hard drives, which is another nice feature. It's also handy as a safeguard against the accidental deletion of folders and files.

KaKa Folder Protector's interface is easy to understand and navigate. To set up the program, access it through its executable file and then select the folder or folders on your computer that you want to protect. KaKa Folder Protector will lock them with one click. We locked a folder and then clicked on it to see how easy or difficult the unlocking process was. A window popped up, prompting us for our password. We entered the password, and the folder unlocked, ready to use. KaKa Folder Protector would be especially useful for laptop users, people who share computers, or people who work with secure data. Be sure to remember your password, however.

KaKa Folder Protector has a Help file and an FAQ. Additional information and support is available on the manufacturer's Web site. This is an unlimited trial version of the software. It installs and uninstalls with no problems. Kaka Folder Protector is an effective, user-friendly data protection solution for individuals of all levels of computer expertise.

"I would advise against buying this."

Pros

It worked briefly.

Cons

After a month of using folder protector it worked fine. Then one day I typed in my usual password, and a message came up saying it was incorrect. I tried again and again and the same message came up (I didn't have caps lock on!). Luckily, previously I had set a password recovery option though my email - but this failed to work either. I got a message saying "the server has denied the request"

Summary

I would personally not recommend this software from my experiences. If anyone has the same problem, refer to the video link below to recover files. It helped me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1NSmaEnvmE
