Released  as fully functional Freeware {48-bit encryption version} with an option to upgrade to a Registered version {up to 448-bit encryption, depending on the password phrase or "key" length used} = 02.18.2002.

Folder Key v1.2 is a useful software application for persons that would like to completely hide any folder (directory) and the files that are contained within, on the system. It  features "Blowfish" encryption of the Admin password to allow to set any selected folder to visible or invisible. The free, or evaluation version, only accepts up to 48-bit encryption rate while the upgraded (registered version) allows up to 448-bit encryption rate.

The way it works...

You are challenged for an "Entry" password upon activation.
After entry to the software you have the options of changing the entry password, hiding or unhiding any folder on the system, making the Windows "Folder Options" menu item visible or invisible on the Windows Explorer or My computer menu bar. VERY IMPORTANT ! The default entry password is "psswd".. please change it the first time you activate the software for security reasons!
If "Folder Options" menu item is set to invisible there is no normal way for any user to change the setting of "Show Hidden Files".

Heres a couple of screen shots ...

Min. Requirements...

Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000 or XP

Terms of use...
I understand that this evaluation version only allows 48-bit encryption, as at this time, encryption technology is controlled for export by the U.S. Government. The software may also be subject to import and/or use regulations in foreign countries. For more information on the U.S. Export Administration Regulations ("EAR"), 15 C.F.R. Parts 730-774, and the Bureau of Export Administration ("BXA"), please see the BXA homepage at http://www.bxa.doc.gov. The registered version allows up to 448-bit encryption (depending on the "key length" you use for the password). No registered version will be furnished to any person restricted from import according to current US law. It is further understood that there is NO "back door" password coded into this software as this would compromise the security of same.

Okay then..  did I tell you that this evaluation 48-bit version of the software is fully functional and completely FREE..   but please consider upgrading to the 448-bit registered version after "kicking the tires" as this will afford you much stronger encryption of your entry password and list of hidden folders! 48-bit encryption rate is not really considered secure in these days of fast computer systems. (no adware, shareware, spyware, underware or any other intrusive practices in either version)

The PC software evaluation version setup/ install is available HERE (2.4Mb).
