It's a fine program but almost impossible for me to use.
As a PC nerd I frequently change my hardware and software but the licencing system frequently prevents me from using the program which I purchased.
I got this message from the developer when I could not register my serial (again):
'Folder Lock switches to trial mode, under the following circumstances: If a user installs a new windows user license or an already registered Folder Lock key; he or she makes changes/upgrades the hardware on his/her PC e.g. new motherboard hard drive etc.; logs in from another windows user account and sometimes even your anti-virus can prevent license registration, restricting communication with our servers.'

Better to use an alternative application which will work after installing upgrades or a different OS.

Folder Lock should be named "Folder Hide". According to help file, it can hide and/or lock a folder, but it is not true. You cannot only lock a folder without hiding it.

Other than that, it works as promised.

It is a blessing to have such a feature packed software that too easy to use. Its user friendly interface makes data security such an easy task for people like me. To me, it is the best data security software at the moment.

If it is "the best data security software" why then just 3 stars (I agree with the rating, just curious about your reasons).

it slows your computer down

it's more like a spyware application because whenever you connect to the internet, it connects to it's server in the background to check the serial number and etc. so it slows your speed. and when you run folderlock cpu usage increases. I don't like it. I prefer folder guard instead of folderlock, because it's faster and reliable.
