What is Lock&Hide?
Lock&Hide is an extremely easy to use program, that allows
you to lock and hide any folder on your
desktop. Folders secured with Lock&Hide cannot be seen, found,
or accessed. Your folders remain totally invisible and highly secured, yet
can be accessed quckly and easily at any time!
Very Easy to Use
No bells and whistles to learn here - anyone can use Lock&Hide right
You just enter the folder name, click Ok, and in an instant your folder will
vanish and be completely secured - locked and hidden.
To bring back a secured folder is just as simple. Enter the folder name and
click OK again and voila, your folder is back on your desktop and fully
Sub Folders Ok
Your folders may also contain sub folders. This is very convenient if
you have a number of different but related folders you would like to
secure. Instead of hiding each one individually, just place them all in
one folder and lock&hide it. With Lock&Hides security method, your whole
folder with any subfolders it contains, will all be protected.
Restore ALL Feature
The RestoreALL feature is an icon that when clicked will restore ALL
your hidden folders without having to enter any folder names. It is great in the
event you have forgotten the names of the folders you hid and to use before
uninstalling to make sure all your secured folders are restored.
Much Faster than Encryption!
Unlike encryption programs
which are so slow, It only takes a few seconds to secure or restore any folder
with Lock&Hide.Of course, the actual speed will depend on your computer. We tested
Lock&Hide on a Pentium 200 with 64 mbs of ram and were able to lock and hide
a 50 mb folder containg 500 files and 40 sub folders, in just 2 seconds.
We then made a mega size folder of 1.4 GIGS, containing 707 subfolders and
13,000 files and it took just under 4 seconds to lock and hide, and only 2
seconds to restore! Try that with an encyption program
High Security Level
With Lock&Hide, no one will even know your secured folders exists. Your folders will not come up in any search result.
Though no folder hiding program can honestly claim it is "crack" proof,
you can rest assured that Lock&Hide gives you a security level
that is much higher than encryption and what you get in programs like Magic
Folders, FolderGuard, Folder Dog and others - most of
which have serious security vulnerabilities, which allow the average person
with intent, to gain full access to your hidden folders and which don't
protect your data from viruses.
Protect Your Data
Lock&Hide is great for keeping your personal files, private images,
finances, and sensitive projects, hidden from others while you are away from your computer or home
It just takes a few seconds to lock&hide or restore any folder, so it's no
trouble at all to keep your data inaccessible even for short back and forth
abscences from your computer.
Lock&Hide works like a toggle switch - enter the folder name to secure OR
restore your folder with one icon.
also ideal for families where the computer is shared with the children. Keep
your folders secured and prevent your files from being viewed or tampered with while your
children or others.take over the computer.
Virus Protection Too!
Because of the way Lock&Hide secures folders, all your locked and hidden
folders are protected from viruses - known or unknown.
Your folders are completely invisible to viruses, trojans and worms.
Just this virus protection aspect is reason enough to use Lock&Hide. Put all
your sensitive data, pictures, emails, etc in a folder and lock and hide it
safely away knowing that you can acess it anytime in a snap.
Lock&Hide comes with an assigned password for extra protection.
This means only you can access Lock&Hide by entering a password any
time you need to access or secure a folder. Even the install program is
For extra protection, even uninstalling Lock&Hide will not delete or reveal any
of your secured folders. Should you ever forget to restore
your secured folders before uninstalling, simply reinstall Lock&Hide
and use the RestoreALL icon to ensure all your folders are restored,
and then uninstall again
This is also good protection in the event someone tries to uninstall
Lock&Hide on you.
As well, it allows you to completely remove Lock&Hide and keep your private
folders hidden without anyone even knowing you have the program installed.
This would be useful when you will be away from the computer for an extended
period of time and the computer will be used by others.
Lock&Hide takes up less than 600 kb of disk space, makes no
changes to your system files and uses
very little system resources and memory.
Also, the two main icons of Lock&Hide are stand alone, independent
executables which means even if you delete them, they won't have any adverse
affects on your system at all!
