Folder Castle 4.1 has been released
MagneticSoft announces the availability of Folder Castle 4.1, the major update of the popular security tool for protecting
computer files and folders from snoops and thieves. The newest version
allows you to quickly hide/unhide your all favorite folders and files
through one command.
Have you ever been humiliated and embarrassed when your most private
files were discovered by a snoop? Would you like to protect your files
and folders from discovery by nosy family members, jealous co-workers,
rivals and thieves? Folder Castle 2.2 is everything you need to protect your
files and peace of mind at home and in the workplace.
May 15, 2008 - MagneticSoft today announces Folder
Castle 2.2, the newest upgrade of the security software for
protecting computer files from snoops and thieves. Now, Folder
Castle can hide files and folders automatically when you log off,
shut down the system, or switch to another user. The latter capability is
available on Windows XP and Vista. Another new feature enables you to
change the hot keys to personal preferences.
Folder Castle provides two methods to keep computer
files away from prying eyes. You can lock away files and folders, which
literally gets confidential materials off the screen in a moment. Or you
can put files into a secure container called Secure Storage with
on-the-fly AES-256 encryption. Secure Storage works in much the same
way as an ordinary drive: it can be mounted or unmounted, defraged,
checked for errors, formatted. Once the files are protected, they
cannot be seen in Windows Explorer even if the computer is re-booted in
Windows Safe Mode. For more security, you can step into Stealth mode,
which instantly hides the presence of Folder Castle
itself. In addition, a password protection scheme ensures that only the
user can restore access to the protected files as well as the control panel.
The following is an overview of just some of the many exciting benefits
of Folder Castle.
- Keep your files hidden away from snoops -
Statistics show that over 90% of all people today have to share their
computer with other people: family members, co-workers or roommates.
Sooner or later some private file will be found by someone who has no
business seeing it. Folder Castle will help you protect
your business documents, personal finances, passwords and dozens of
other private items of which you have no desire to share with anyone.
Once hidden, the files become undetectable, so no snoop will ever be
tempted by their sight and get the hands on them.
- Protect the files on a stolen laptop from thieves -
The theft of a portable computer continues to be on the rise. The loss
of the equipment due to theft is only part of the problem. The real
value of the stolen computer lies within the data it contains, which are
literally hundreds if not thousands of times more valuable. When you
protect and hide your laptop's information with Folder
Castle, the software turns the files invisible so that it is
almost like the files do not exist at all.
- Take your protected data with you on the USB drive -
Folder Castle lets you use one of those USB flash
drives, ZIP drives or any other removable device to store your protected
data. Just create Secure Storage on the removable device, put files in
to it and you're free to roam the planet without the fear of data loss
or theft. To get access to the files, plug the USB drive into the USB port,
mount the drive and open the storage. The only condition is that another
computer should also have Folder Castle software installed.
People are nosey. They'll read your newspaper over your shoulder if given
the chance, listen in to your side of a cell phone conversation and pry
into computer files. Information in these files is something identity
thieves and jealous co-workers need to make your life miserable for
months if not for years to come. So why treat your computer any
differently than you do your other valuable property, for which you
probably have some kind of protection like a safe?
If you are ready for some affordable, state-of-the-art protection, then
you are ready for Folder Castle 2.2. It'll protect your
computer files and peace of mind.
