Thread: Folder Lock Program

  1. #1
    Isnt there a program that lets you lock a selected folder with a password?

    If there is such a program, please, could you post the hash for it?

    Also.....does locking my folders protect me from hackers?

  3. Software & Hardware   -   #3
    The only way I know of to lock a folder(with a password) is to put it in a zip file.
    There are some folders on my computer that I'ld like to see locked with a password without compressing it but I don't know of any way to do so.

    But if all this is sufficient enough to protect it against hackers...it all depends on their skills I guess.But a decent firewall would be a good deffence.

    not sure about winzip, but winrar has a "storage" compression setting
    basically all it does is archive w/o compressing, and you can apply a p/w to it

    just right ckick the folder, select "add to archive..."
    it'll give ya the option there

    B)

    -edit- yep, you can do it in winzip too, just select "none" for compression
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    the problem with these methods are that you need to make ANOTHER copy to the file... anyway, look on k-lite for a programme called FoldeGuard (make sure it has a crack or a serial), and it works great (lol, you can even lock up your whole hard drive if i remember!!! )

    why lock it? if a hacker really wanted ur folder it's still a futile attempt

    best way i know is to hide it with partitionmagic

    hides a whole partition.

    just create a new partition and put all ur porn there, then hide it, it's gone

    Why bother doing that when you can download Magic Folders which effectively hides your folders for you?

    Here's an extract from their website...

    Your invisible folders and files can't be deleted, viewed, modified, or run. For all practical purposes they don't exist. Use Magic Folders to protect your finances, taxes, business and personal documents. Others won't know these files exist and they won't be able to accidentally delete or modify them either. With Magic Folders you can turn your computer over to your children or co-workers without worrying if they'll delete, modify or view important files.

    Yet, just enter your password and you'll instantly have complete and normal access to all your folders and the files within. There's no need to un-hide each file or folder individually. And Magic Folders is totally transparent. No one need know your invisible folders/files even exist.

    If you wish, you can establish five different accounts so everyone using your computer can create their own invisible folders that only they have access to.

    If you share your computer you need Magic Folders. Use it to protect files you don't want others to delete, modify, view, or use. Keep your important files safe. Protect them with Magic Folders!
