How does Protect Folder work?

An on-the-fly encryption technology is used for protection. Protect Folder decrypts files quickly and transparently. Protected files are encrypted and decrypted in real time. It allows you to securely store data and at the same time have no difficulties in accessing files. You need only the password to access the data.

Can I work with a secure folder in the same way as with a regular folder?

When your secure folder is unlocked, you can work with it as with a regular folder. You can run applications from it, edit documents, create folders, and so on. As soon as you save data to the secure drive, the data is encrypted in real time. When you lock the folder, it automatically encrypts all files in it.

Will the removable drive be protected if I insert it into another computer?

Yes, the protection will always work. Your files will always be protected on other computers or in other operating systems.

Can I create secure folders on removable drive?

Yes, Protect Folder allows you to create secure folders on removable storage devices. Protection for a folder on a removable drive will work the same as for a regular folder.

Can I install programs into secure folders?

You can install programs into secure folders, but applications may work incorrectly if they are run when the folder is locked. An application installed to a secure folder must be run only if the folder is unlocked.

Can I back up files stored in a secure folder?

Yes, you can back up protected files. Export the secure folder to a backup folder. Exported files will be encrypted. To export a secure folder, use the Export Secure Folder button in Folder Settings > Export. You must remember the password for the secure folder to import its files later.

Does protection work in standby mode?

To protect your files, secure folders and removable drives will be automatically locked when your computer switches to standby mode.

How about protection on removable drives?

Protect Folder can be used for removable drive protection. Protect Folder allows you to transport your sensitive data safely and easily. The user will need only the password to unlock the drive, no additional software. Make your storage device secure with Protect Folder and then simply insert it into any PC or laptop and decrypt the data by entering the password without any additional software. When you lock your secure drive, all files will be automatically encrypted within a second.

I forgot the password for the folder. Can you restore my files?

Unfortunately, we can't. You must remember the password you created, because we will not be able to restore your data without it.

Can I transfer my secure folder?

Yes, you can transfer your secure folder anywhere. Export your secure folder and import it to the new location. You must remember the password for the secure folder to import it later.

I upgraded to a newer version. After I uninstalled the previous version of Protect Folder, I have some secure folders left. How do I add them to the list in the new version of Protect Folder?

Import your secure folders into the new version of Protect Folder. To add a secure folder to the list, use the Import tab in the Protect Folder settings.

What is the maximum size of a secure folder?

The maximum size of a secure folder is limited only by the free space on your drive.
