The only thing this is good for is hiding porn other than that took me less then 10 minutes to defeat the decryption without using the program lol

Thanks for the laugh though

DB, You can easily move the program from C: \ to another partition. (if there is one)

My advice is never encrypt a file on your computer unless you have a backup copy of it.

I'll stick with [Free] VeraCrypt.

The recatcha is getting more crazy than usual. Nothing like a loooong key sequence to copy and past to get rid of commenters.

Question
If a file on a USB-stick was locked by this program and you take that USB-stick to another Windows, also with this program, but different password? Is it still locked?
This because I install this program and locked some files and map's. (sadly only one password can used for all of them.)
After that I rebooted this Windows and therefore I lost the program on purpose.
I could not open the files:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/i28mn3wgy0sravw/MapZonderGOTDprog.png
After that I installed the GOTD-program with another main password.
Now all file's could be opened.
Also I used the option "lost password" and after entering the code again, I could set a new password and all files were accessible:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6osb53qs5c04sng/VergetenWachtwoord.png
and: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k6h9gbwb86qpta5/NieuwWachtwoord.png
Is there only one method of encryption and the only purpose of the password is to let the program run?

it not efficient enough or at all because you can bypass any locked or hidden folder or file using data recovery software. i used Do Your Data Recovery 6.6

Agree with Morgan Pierce, what are the licence limitations ? Is it lifetime ?

Can XBoft please confirm for us.

The developer wrote: "Supports fast encryption and decryption of very large files or folders, which is done in an instant."

Now that is impossibility, it means nothing has been done to the file but some parameters at the file heading are changed, no real encryption or decryption has been done but the file is marked as hidden only and access was changed and limited to the password used as user only. Cleaver trick to fool the users.

Sinny, I would use 7-Zip and use the encryption in that. I have a lot more faith in that software and I know you can't break it if the key is modestly long.

No clear if this is lifetime without updates. GAOTD should put that label right after the product description to eliminate all guesswork. I do not see that anywhere here, so I will pass on this one. The last thing I want is to lock something up and not be able to get at it again.

why don't you create a virtual drive (vhd) on your hard drive, use bitlocker to encrypt it, and store confidential files on it? when you have finished the task at hand, right click on the vhd, and eject it.

when you need access again, simply click on the vhd file in the root of and enter the password when prompted.

walt, Not all Windows Versions support BitLocker
Supported operating systems:
Windows 10 - Education, Pro, or Enterprise edition
Windows 8 — Professional or Enterprise edition
Windows 7 — Enterprise or Ultimate edition
But a similar product is the free Safehouse Explorer which also can be used on a flash drive

walt, you could use the free version of SafeHouse.

Tried to lock a simple picture file. Unfortunately the file still opens without password but was a little blurry.
It should not have opened at all.
Can't afford an unstable Lock/Hidden file system, so un-installed it immediately.

Re "If you have forgotten your user password, you can use the license code to reset the user password."

We all have the same licence code, so we can reset each others password. So think twice to share this program with people who can access your computer.

See https://www.xboft.com/folderlock/faq/technical.html

krypteller,
why would you want to reset my password for this program only?
And when you do find out my registration name or email address, are you able to reset my other 56 different passwords that I use in other programs? Big loss if you reset this password for this particular program because it is free today and I can use any other "free" program that does the same thing for $0.00
go ahead and reset my password, I'm not worried and I'm not so sure if you are even capable of resetting it because of your computer expertise.

krypteller, how can one reset the password/key of previously encrypted content? Maybe they have a fixed key or do not encrypt but just encode something about the file and the password is just a string stored in the registry like that other program a few months back that claimed to let us store multi-user "encrypted" notes that were NOT encrypted but just encoded in a very transparent and inefficient manner and stored the multi-users login credentials as plain text registry entries in the current user reg hive... My sentiments are if we need to encrypt file contents on our computers the file contents probably should never have been commited to a computer system in the first place as nothing is certain to be 100% secure.

Very good, encryption is fast. The hidden folder feature is very useful.

alisa,
did it actually work to prevent you from opening the file?
This is a first for this program.
