      This seems like a useful little tool. I think the security on my home network can do with a little improvement. I read a story the other day about a guy that had his PC fixed and they replaced his drive. They then repaired the drive and sold it to someone else and all his bank details where on there. So protecting your files is a good idea.

      Definitely useful when you are on a pc which is shared between different people… But no probs for me… I don’t even share my pc, I don’t even have anything to be protected. My mozilla password has been protected with master password. No probs at all.. Good share, many people search for such tools…

    7. Nice software, been using it since long time

    8. Dennis Edell says:

    9. Nihar says:

      @Pavan, Yeah i agree, it the PC is shared then the utility is a must.

      @Madhur, Nice to see you here.

      Great application, have downloaded and will install it later. Now I can have my important docs secure from curious eyes. I usually keep copies of my policies, bank statements, payslips, etc in a doc called “my private docs” and it used to stress me a lot that I couldn’t lock this folder from people who tend to continue using my laptop when I’m not busy with it. Thank you for the info and download link.

      Looks good to me. I always wanted to lock my private files. Usually, I will make it hidden in some windows directory. This tool gives more space to me. Great tool you share here.
