"YOU DON't OWN IT! "Renewal notice" arrived today"

December 11, 2012  |  By dahnb

 |  Version: Protected Folder 1.0

Pros

works fine

Cons

I have this on 2 pcs & it works well. I was glad I BOUGHT it.
Imagine my surprise when I received an email from Avantgate/Iobit asking for $9.97 to "renew" my "license"!!!
This is just plain illegal. This was never part of the info given on the page where you supposedly "purchase" this software.

Summary

I've sent an email to Iobit & will update this review after I hear back from them.

"Pretty Simple"

March 18, 2012  |  By Erick3188

 |  Version: Protected Folder 1.0

Pros

Cheap at $19.99 and delivers what it promises.
Easy to use Drag and Drop system.
Little to no Resource use - During locking and unlocking.
You can choose to hide the folder completely (IE no thumbnails) or you can expose it as any normal folder, but not to access or delete or copy or anything.

Cons

You if you need to say... upload a picture from a locked folder through a web browser (as in uploading to Flickr from a locked folder) It won't let you. You have to unlock the whole folder first.
This means you have to remember to lock it again manually after you're done getting that file. So if your house gets raided by the Internet Police, you better hope you remembered to lock everything first...

Summary

Choose a password.
Drag a Folder or an entire Volume into the program to Lock It.
Lock and Close the Program.
Now the Folder is locked and you can't access it unless you run the Program. enter your password, and remove it from the "Locked" list. Pretty straight forward.
There is an Exclusion List on the Options by the way. If you can't add a Hard Disk Volume to be locked, check the exclusion list and removed the folder/volume from it.
I gave it a four because it works and it is soo simple to use, but you do have to redo things manually from time to time. Its basically perfect for Folders that are not accessed often. IE, Back Up Folders that sit idle for weeks or months.

"it does what it says but still risky"

August 13, 2011  |  By poweruser73

 |  Version: Protected Folder 1.0

Pros

its a good piece of software. it worked well and efficiently for me.

Cons

it only has 10 times usage limit, so each time you press lock and exit you lose one usage. it could get risky as you might lock an important folder/file and run out of your usages.it wont allow any further usage unless you buy it from iobit.

"If you value your files, do not use this software"

April 09, 2011  |  By TheencryptionMan

 |  Version: Protected Folder 1.0

Pros

Like other people have said your going to get the blue screen of death and your files will be gone!

Cons

Useless buggy software.

Summary

For those who want real file protection try: AxCrypt http://www.axantum.com/axcrypt/ or Kruptos www.kruptos2.com both of which have been around for a while and are good.
