"WORKS WELL"

February 09, 2009  |  By chefjeff1958

 |  Version: Free Folder Hider 10.5

Pros

Can lock a file or folder fast.
Nice simple interface.
User friendly.
No bugs.

Cons

Can't operate in stealth mode.
Free version only allows you to lock one folder.

Summary

After trying previous versions, 10.5 finally works. Other versions were full of errors, couldn't even get them to run, but this version is bug free.
Free Folder Hider 10.5 is a good program for keeping others from viewing your files.
But it's not exactly free, you must pay $19.95 to be able to lock more than one folder, still not a bad price, but it shouldn't be called free.
I have been using Folder Latch, but the process to lock files takes too much time, too many steps to go through, Free Folder Hider allows you to lock a file or folder with one click, nice! And it remembers your files so you don't have to add them to your lock list every time you open the program.
I think I will buy this, I was going to buy Folder Locker, but that's $39.95, this is half price and does the same job.

"Not very impressed."

December 07, 2008  |  By ddeeville

 |  Version: Free Folder Hider 10.5

Pros

it is easy to use,

Cons

An advertised freeware program should be just that. after a while could either buy a registration, or they said could download/try different software. And this would automaticall enter key. Okay, the download did not do this for me.

Summary

while it is easy to operate, there is not a lot of flexibility, like would not lock a single file, had to be in folder. If you want something to do just this one thing, not so free,
then this is it.

"easy to use BUT NOT FREE"

September 30, 2008  |  By augie62

 |  Version: Free Folder Hider 10.5

Pros

Very simple to use. I had no problem using it for the ONE HOUR TRIAL! Then I couldn't unlock my locked files.

Cons

Don't try to lock two files with the same name ( like a backup on another drive). If locked you can't unlock them and there is no adequate help. Rename files first as if they are locked you can't rename them.

Summary

Add a trouble shooting section and own up to the cost and it can be very useful.
