Editors' review

Translation issues will confound some users with this file and folder encryption program. However, with a bit of trial and error, Fox Files Locking effectively blocks access to selected items. The sleek, attractive interface appears straightforward, but it hides a few quirks.

The quick file browser makes it easy to simply click on a directory or folder to see its contents. Confusingly placed checkboxes appear to control locking files. Without a Help file, users are forced to notice the publisher's screenshot of the app indicating files must be highlighted and individually locked. Pressing Lock Selected Files immediately hides files from view in Windows Explorer. It works on executable files, but Start menu entries and shortcuts are still visible. However, they no longer function.

There aren't any configuration options before you lock items, but we found that you could right click on an item and view Set Attributes. The dialog's checkboxes actually work, and make it easy to change the ReadOnly, Hidden, Archive, and System options.

Already difficult to understand in places, the online Help file, and other text sometimes displayed in the program's original Russian. We're not sure what was intended with the limitation "Intended for acquaintance only," but we found some features disabled in the demo. Fox Files Locking worked well, but no better than some cheaper options in the category.
