Protected Folder - Data locking utility
Review by on
There are many reasons to protect sensitive data and you can find just as many applications for this purpose. A shiny example, both literally and figuratively, is Protected Folder. It can be used to lock and hide any amount of files or folders at a moment's notice. You just need to specify what data you wish to protect and the application will do the rest.

Protected Folder is not free, but you can use a fully functional trial version to see how it works. Installing the application is a quick and straightforward operation, which does not involve any complex settings. Protected Folder works on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7 and Win 8 and it doesn't need too much memory or processing power.

The user interface is designed to look like a vault and it is very well animated. It should be fairly obvious that you have to type in your password when you launch the application. Once you insert the correct password, a steel vault door will slide open to reveal a files list and the application's core functions.

All you have to do is add your files or folders to the list, on the main user interface, and the application will lock and hide them instantly. Alternatively, you can browse for the files or folders on a small window. When your data is secure, you may click a button, located in the lower right corner of the interface and the vault door will slide shut, after which the application will shut down automatically. To unlock your files and folders, you only need to remove them from the list. The application displays recently added files and folders, so you can lock them again, without browsing for anything.

Protected Folder provides three layers of security. It can hide data in Windows Explorer or other applications and you won't be able to find it, even if you set the operating system to show hidden items. Furthermore, it can deny read access rights, which means that no one will be able to run, copy or read your files. Finally, the software can deny write access rights, which means that locked data can not be moved, deleted or modified. You can enable or disable these security features separately, in the general settings menu.

Pros:
Protected Folder can lock and hide your files and folders instantly. You can enable or disable its security features separately. The application provides a beautifully animated user interface and its functions are very easy to understand.

Cons:
You can run the application's trial version for a limited number of times.

Using Protected Folder looks and feels just like placing documents in an uncrackable vault.
