My Lockbox is a security software enabling you to password protect any folder on your computer. This awesome software is developed by FSPRO – Labs The protected folder is hidden from any user and application of your system, including Administrator and System itself. It is impossible to access the lockbox not only from the local computer, but also from the net. The program is extremely easy to use. You can set the lockbox location and the password during the setup procedure. After the setup is done, lockbox will be hidden and locked until you enter the valid password. You know why I’m recommending this software? Because, I’m using this awesome software to hide my personal folders and files. I have already tried lot of software’s before for the same purpose. No one will provide this type of ultimate protection. The reason I’m using “My Lockbox” in the first place is because it promised to maintain its protection even under safe mode.On the other hand I would think that the whole point of using an encryption program, at least on a desktop system, is to hide the knowledge that the hidden files are there rather than to hide them well necessarily. If this is what you are after then My Lockbox might be a very good fit for you, as it can hide and unhide your protected folder at a push of a button.
My Lockbox hides and password protects a folder on your machine instantly. Can be invoked using a keyboard shortcut (CTRL-Shift-P by default). No need to create hard disk partitions and /or allocate space for virtual volumes. Booting into safe mode does not reveal your hidden folder, which remains hidden just as when booting under the normal Windows environment. Note: you have to check “protect in safe mode” in the settings.
Next noticeable thing is, shutting down the My Lockbox process does not reveal your folder. Note that the program is added to your start folder, probably to support the hotkey (mentioned above). However you can remove it from the start folder using Starter. I advise this as I do not see why this process should be potentially calling attention to itself until I manually start it myself. (Note: the process takes up a mere 3.5 megs in memory). Once your folder is unlocked, a little “My Lockbox” icon in the tray menu gives quick access to the program. If you do not want this icon to be showing (and advertising itself) you can hide it.
My Lockbox is a very easy program to use and does not require the kind of setting up needed for more powerful virtual-partition type programs. If you don’t expect a ninja-force of black-clad techies crashing through your house in order to get to your PC and reveal your hidden files, “My Lockbox” just might be a good solution for hiding files you don’t want other people to know about.
