About Folder Security

USB External and Removable Drives

Folder Security is the only software program that supports external and removable drives. However, please note the program does not protect entire drives; it protects folders on the drives.

Folders password-protected but not locked

You can password protect folders located on external and removable drives. However, these folders are not locked -- this means they can be renamed or removed from the drive.

If you know the password, you can open the protected folders on any PC. Please note that Folder Security must be installed on the PC as it's not a stand-alone application.

If the drive is not connected

You can see all the protected folders in the Folder Security list. If you try to unprotect a folder located on an external or removable drive when the drive is not connected, Folder Security will display an error message.

If you remove the folder from the Folder Security list, you still can unprotect it. Folder Security supports Windows Explorer. To unprotect a folder, double-click it in Windows Explorer and enter your password (Folder Security must be installed on PC).

Folder Security works under Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP, NT, ME, 98. Upgrades are free. You should buy the full version of Folder Security and password protect your folders now so that others do not mess up with your files.
