Protect your files and folders


File Lock can hide your files and folders.

Once hidden, a file or folder becomes completely invisible to users and programs, just as if it were not there in the system.


A locked file or folder is visible to users, but none can read, write, modify, move, delete, or rename it.

Sub-folders and files in a locked folder are also protected.

Password Protect

When trying to access a password-protected file/folder, the File Lock asks for the password to grant access.

And more protection modes are available:

When a folder is protected, sub-folders and files in that folder are all protected with the same protection mode.

Protect a single file/folder in different modes

With the following additional features provided by File Lock, a single file/folder can be protected in different ways for different users, or at different dates and times.

  • Users & Groups
  • Schedule Options
  • Trust Apps

Users & Groups

You can specify users and groups for a protected item, and then the protection will only be enabled for the users you have specified.

File Lock supports local users, local groups, domain users and domain groups.

Schedule Options

You can use the schedule option to control when to protect a file or folder, daily, weekly or monthly.

Internet time can be enabled for schedule options, to avoid bypassing protection by changing system time.

Trust Apps

Trust Apps, a.k.a. "Trusted programs", are programs that can always access the protected files and folders.

You can also set the users, groups and schedule options for trusted programs.

A single file or folder can be protected multiple times, each with different protection mode, users, schedule option etc. Thus, you can protect a file or folder in different ways for different users, at different hours, or both. Examples:
