Lock Folder XP Review

Hide and Lock Folders in Windows XP
A review of Lock Folder XP by Felix Cheng

Lock Folder XP is a security tool for Windows systems which allows you to lock or protect your files and folders. With Lock Folder XP, you can also lock entire hard drives and keep prying eyes away from sensitive or otherwise private information. Lock Folder XP can also protect your precious data from malware such as viruses, worms and trojans regardless of whether you're running an Antivirus program or not.

Lock Folder XP usage is actually pretty easy, and involves an easy drag-and-drop of files and/or folders to the Lock Folder XP main application window. Everything else afterwards is done automatically by the program.

The company behind this software download states that many of the threats people face when it comes to breaches in data security are from within as opposed to foreign sources like hackers. The developer realized this and designed Lock Folder XP to be safe from within your network or from outside of it.

This program was created specifically to keep all health, financial, credit, private or identity information completely confidential. It is also a great way to keep nosy spouses and siblings out of your stuff!

Lock Folder XP can password protect folders and hide folders.
