EG Folder Lock

Version: 1.6

EG Folder Lock is an easy, simple, user friendly, fast and absolutely free software used to lock your important, sensitive folder (A folder contains folders, files, documents, images, videos etc.) on your computer. The folder is password protected and cannot be copied, accessed, renamed and deleted without the correct password. Also the software cannot be uninstalled without the correct password.

The Locked Folder cannot be accessed from shortcuts, recent documents files/folders, command prompt, changing drive letter, safe mode, booting from another computer via virtual box or other means.

Released Versions:

1.6 (Latest version) – Download Link  

1.5 (old version) – Download Links. x64 , x86 , XP 32Bit   

In version 1.6, some extra features are added. These features are-            

 (1). Folder drag-and-drop Supported-

After entering correct password, either you can select a folder from `Select Folder` button or you can directly drag-and-drop a folder to the window and then the folder is selected.                   

(2). Password hint to rememorize the password-                   

Some users cannot remember their password or they forget their password after a long time. So when you set or change the password it gives an option for a password hint. You must have to give a minimum two or maximum five characters password hint. So when you forget your password you can rememorize it by the password hint. Please remember that the password and password hint should not be same. Although the software will not show any message in this case,   it is on your own risk. Password hint is a reminder of how a password was derived. But it should not be so simple that anyone can guess the password. For example, if the password contains the date of someone`s birthday, one might enter the name (or short name) of the person. However, password hints have to be carefully conceived; otherwise, a non-authorized user might figure it out.  

(3). Minimize, maximize, move and resize the window-                    

After enter the correct password, you can minimize, maximize, move and resize the window. So there is not any problem of resolution. In version 1.5, the windows size is fixed and so some part of the window and even buttons are clipped when we change resolution.  

(4). Visit website, give feedback and download updates directly from the software-                   

In this version you can give your feedback, support us (donate), visit our website, connect with us on social media and check important updates directly from the software.       

(5) Refreshing the unlocked folder–

Sometimes the folder is not visible until we refresh the desktop or explorer. So we have added an extra button in the software for refreshing the desktop and explorer window. Also in any case of error, we can refresh 2-3 times to get the solution.  Because it (pressing the `Refresh` button) repeats last unlocking process with refreshing the desktop & explorer window.

(6) Other Improvements –

 Reliability and Speed of locking processes are improved.

NOTES:

Ø Please read the full license page and must agree with it. If you do not agree with the license, stop using this software.

Ø If you forget your password and also not able to rememorize it from the hint, then we will not be able to help you in any situation.

Recommendation:

It is best if your important data is encrypted before you are going to lock them. If you want to protect data of big size (e.g. greater than 5GB) like a folder contain only movies and videos you do not need to encrypt them. But if your folder contains important documents, images, other documented type files then you should use encryption. We provide a free software `EG File Encryption` to encrypt/decrypt a file or folder. You may download it from Here
