    "Protect USB feature is my favorite"

    July 22, 2014   |   By davidcarlos231

    Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

    Pros

    It secures data saved in my laptop as well as in my USB drive

    Cons

    Trying my best to find one

    Summary

    I love this software, it is certainly different from others. I first used this program just to secure the information saved on my laptop. However, I was delighted to find out that it has the capability of securing portable drives as well. This feature of this software makes it better than the others.

    "It leaves no clue behind"

    July 22, 2014   |   By johnyjohn136

    Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

    Pros

    The software is simple wow

    Cons

    No cons, the software is just perfect

    Summary

    It locks and hide my files, encrypts them and maintains its back up. I think it is enough for a data security software. But, Folder Lock is something special, it shred files and cleans history as well. It means there is no clue left of what kind of information you had saved on your computer and there are no traces of any computer usage history left. These features simply enhance the data security.

    June 18, 2014   |   By johnpatrick94

    "Nice features & useful too"

    May 19, 2014   |   By Jeraldstrode6

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.6

    Pros

    Features are useful for my needs

    Cons

    Didn't discover any as of now

    Summary

    Great software, I use it at work and home to hide and lock all my folders. Recently, I discovered that I can create password-protected lockers and save them to my USB. This is something of a bonus discovery for me, as I no longer have to purchase separate software to lock my USB. Plus it also has a built in history cleaner. I would say this software is a complete data security suite; it was well worth the $40 I paid for it.

    "Loved it before I did not."

    May 05, 2014   |   By N1900Z

    Version: Folder Lock 5.3.5

    Pros

    Great Idea. Fast, easy, Pretty cool.

    Cons

    Works great at first then It crashes, Your info in locker stuck, you cant get to it, like having a lock box, A key for the box, but the box is out of reach.
    Undependable.

    Summary

    Undependable. I have read from others about folder lock crashing a lot and it happened to me. Had some important info in a floder locker, went to open it and It would not open, I get a "Folder lock Crashed" error message, I tried restarting PC and still no go. Luckily I had a copy of the install and installed Folder lock on another PC, then moved my locked file over to that PC and was able to open it again.

    I will not be using this program any longer because I can not depend on it. If they get it fixed in the future I would love to use it again but at this point why bother.

    I have other ways of storing my info safely and will stick to those.

    This was a 5 star for the month I used it with no problem, but now I do not trust it.

    "Brute security and UN-crack able"

    May 03, 2014   |   By jasonbond12

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.6

    Pros

    256bit AES encryption

    Cons

    Still looking to find them

    Summary

    I tried to crack this software, so that I could upload it to pirate bay. Sadly, I failed in my attempts. It seems that the integrity of this software is perfect from a hacker's point of view. I have to say that the developers had spent a great deal of time and effort to make sure this software is free of all security loop-holes. I've never encountered such software which I wasn't able to crack, though this one takes the cake. I just want to give props to the developers of folder lock, well done!

    "Packed full of features"

    May 03, 2014   |   By carlospaul34

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.6

    Pros

    All features are useful

    Cons

    Involves a slight learning curve

    Summary

    I downloaded the trial version to see if it was worth my investment. After using it for a couple of days, I found the software extremely useful in hiding my private folders - especially the ones located on my desktop. Sometimes I have to email my boss sensitive company data, and it was always an issue with email security and all. So, folder lock also has this encrypted email feature in which I can attach the PDF and excel files and it works like an encrypted zip folder which is password protected. All I had to do is tell my boss the password and he can securely access all email attachments. Since I began using Folder Lock at work, most of my co-workers became interested in the software, and they have all bought a licensed version. Considering the fact that the software license is valid for lifetime of your PC, and not to mention a variety of features, it is certainly a bargain.
