"Wonderful software to have"

July 29, 2015  |  By neal.william

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.2

Pros

It is multi-featured and extremely easy to use.

Cons

I find this program nearly perfect.

Summary

It does not only offer me military grade encryption with ease, but, it also allows me to shred irrelevant files. I didn't know how can I delete files permanently and make them irrecoverable, now I can easily erase irrelevant files without any sort of complication.

"After Sales support was completely non existent"

July 28, 2015  |  By IanG____

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.2

Pros

Software works well to encrypt data and fairly easy to use.

Cons

1. newsoftwares.net did not reply to my two emails requesting urgent help with Folder Lock. Their website states they will reply to emails within 24 hours. I have now waited six days for a reply and still have not received one.
2. newsoftwares.net cannot be contacted on the telephone (perhaps they are unaware of the invention of the telephone).
3. newsoftwares.net advertise Folder Lock can be used permanently by the purchaser on one computer only. I bought a new computer and discovered I had lost my registration number and newsoftwares.net password key needed to reinstall the software on my new computer. newsoftwares.net were unwilling to send me this information although I have my receipt of purchase.
4. I discovered my folders were still encrypted when i transferred them onto my new computer, although I had already opened them on my old computer, which decrypts them. As mentioned, newsoftwares.net did not reply to my two messages (which also asked for help regarding this).

Summary

After Sales support was completely non existent from newsoftwares.net. newsoftwares.net are only interested in taking your money. I managed to solve the problem by getting help from a PC repairs technician who has over 15 years experience. Do NOT uninstall the software if you get the same problem as the software will NOT automatically decrypt your data.

"A Piece of immature Junk"

May 25, 2015  |  By RickyN101

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

Does not lock folders on a network drive.
Does not integrate with the windows drop down menus

Cons

It just refuses to lock folders on a network drive then it directs you to its help pages which tell you nothing about this problem or if it does it is buried away in some obscure corner.
How can it be that it cant give you an option in a drop down menu ?
just imagine , you navigate to a folder, you right click and the windows menu drops down...heck there it is select lock folder ,it asks you for a password, done !!!
hell I must be dreaming

Summary

Do not buy if you want to lock a folder on a network drive.I tried it with Asus Aicloud storage, a 2TB drive hooked through a DSL AC68U modem using the basic windows access on my computer treating it like I would any external drive.
