MyLockbox –Encode and hide folders

My Lockbox is security software that enables you to hide a folder from any user or application, including administrator and the system itself using a password. This is very helpful in securing your sensitive information from others. Nobody can see your folder or access it without a password.

The program is very simple to use. Download and install it, set the password during the installation procedure (you can change it later, if you want). Start the program, select a folder and hide it by clicking on ‘Select’ button or just drag and drop the folders in to program window. Confirm your action by clicking on the button ‘Lock’.

My Lockbox Control Panel allows you easily change basic lockbox parameters such as its location, protection status and password.

The best thing about the program is that it is effective and easy to use in Windows XP. However, under Vista it fails to protect you. Any one can view the hidden folder using Vista’s Shadow Explorer feature.
