About the software
Folder Guard® is a powerful computer security software tool that you can use to hide private folders and files from other users of your computer, lock folders with passwords, protect system files from damage (intentional or not), and to control access to other Windows resources.
CAUTION: Folder Guard is a powerful tool that should be used with care. Start with protecting some test files and folders, to get an understanding how Folder Guard works, before protecting your important documents for real. Always have a backup of your important files.
Folder Guard can lock private folder with a password, so that only you would be able to open the files and documents it contains.
You can create a folder password that would allow to open the folder only if someone knows the password. You can protect different folders with different passwords, and you can add several different passwords to the same folder, each password authorizing the full or read-only access to the folder and the files within. If the folder is shared on a LAN network, you can also create separate passwords to be used by the network users, to unlock access to the shared folder over the network. (Note: the password-protection of the shared folders is only available for the business customers of Folder Guard.)
