File Lock is a powerful tool that allows you to protect your files/folders in several ways. It allows you to hide, lock, or password-protect a file or folder by simply dragging it into the program's main window. If you protect a folder, all its subfolders and files will be automatically protected using the same method. In addition, File Lock allows you to set trusted apps and encrypt your files.

The program features an intuitive and self-descriptive user interface, which is divided into four sections: Protect, Trust Apps, Encrypt, and Tools. As its name suggests, the Protect section allows you to protect individual files and/or folders. If you drag a file or folder into this section of the program, a dialog will open and allow you to select the protection method, the users and/or user groups the protection will be applied to, and a schedule setting for the protection. In fact, File Lock allows you to select among 7 protection levels - allow, read-only, lock, hide, allow read - password write, password protect, and password read - block write.

On the other hand, the program can use Windows' users and user groups to define what protection modes are applied to what users. As for the temporal protection, the program allows you to schedule the protection for a file/folder on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, or simply “all the time”. You can even apply different protection schemas to the same file or folder, which gives you an incredible flexibility, as you can, for example, hide or lock a file for a specific user only at a specified date and/or time. more
