I Folder Locker is a software application that adds security to your files and folders by locking them with password protection. Only the user who knows the password will be able to unlock and access the locked items.
There isn't much to this application, but what is there is something very useful and easy to use. You simply open the application, choose a folder or file to lock and then set up a password. To unlock the folder or file you go through a similar process but enter the already given password as the final step. Locking your files makes it so no one else can change, access and/or delete your personal and important folders and files, which is a great extra level of security. There isn't any Help page -- they do list a Web site, though -- but there really is no need for a tutorial to figure out how this works. It will advise you to move a folder off of the Windows drive when you try to lock it, however, since locking it there can cause issues with your computer. This is really the only thing we didn't like, and it is an insignificant little blip in the features.
The download and installation was very quick -- probably because it isn't a very large application, so there isn't much to download. Once it's set up, there's no need for registration or other annoying processes. You just download, install, and enjoy the benefits.
From IPC Solutions:
I_Folder_Locker is folder locking software that can password protect folders, encrypt or lock files, and protect USB Drives. The program supports all flavors of Windows such as Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 including their 64-bit variants. Folder Lock creates protected storages called 'Lockers'. You can keep as many of your private files & folders in Locker and password protect it with a single click. Lockers are fully protected with latest technologies so that no one can access, delete, rename, cut, and copy. All standard as well as advanced operations are disabled on locked storages. So no one can access your protected files and folders. It uses the windows methods to lock your folder so even after you remove this software no one can open that folder until or unless you unlock it with I_Folder_Locker by entering a valid password.

good password error opening!!!I have: i_Folder_Locker 1.2 .... which did not require any installation,at first it worked very well but after a couple of months I tried to unlook the folder (WITH THE GOOD PASSWORD) it says error EC111,error in unlocking...if i type any other wrong password it says incorrect password please reenter your password.PLEASE HELP ME... I Really do not know what to do,ALL MY VIDEOS AND PHOTOS ARE THERE...Thank you very very much!!! p.s: i am using windous 7 home premium 64bit and the i_folder_locker file is :92kb size
This program seemed secure but after forgetting my password, I found that my files were recoverable by using the "Copy & Rename" function of Flexible Renamer v8.4 by Naru (you can find it in CNET) and can delete the undeletable "locker" with Unlocker v1.9.1 by Cedrick Collomb (find it at unlocker.emptyloop.com ) Thanks for nothing.
