When sharing your PC with others and you have files that are sensitive or confidential, it's essential that you have a tool to protect those files from prying eyes. This is where FolderSpark comes in.

FolderSpark is a free software tool that lets you lock folders and encrypt files to forbid any unauthorized access. Additionally, the software enables you to decrypt those files if you need access or they no longer need protection.

In addition to ensuring the security of personal content, FolderSpark comes with other features which also reinforce the safety of your files.

When you initially launch the program, you'll see a registration page. This is optional as you can click "Never Remind Again" to bypass the registration process.

Next, you'll need to create a master password that you'll use each time run the program. Once you create the master password, you'll be taken to the main interface which includes three functions designed to protect your files, folders, and sensitive information.

Lock Folder

This feature allows you to lock an entire folder and its contents quickly. Simply select the folder, and click "Lock." The folder will be locked without setting another password. To unlock the folder, click "Unlock." That's it. Simple.

Encrypt File

This section of the program is designed to encrypt your files. Select the file you want to encrypt, create a custom password, and click "Encrypt." You have the option to copy the custom password to the clipboard to add to your password manager or any program you use to save your passwords. You also have the option to email the password to yourself for safekeeping or email it to an associate if they need to access the file. This is a handy feature if you encrypt a document that you need to send, and want to ensure only the recipient can view it.

Decrypt File

To decrypt an encrypted file, select the file, add the encryption password you previously created, and click "Decrypt."

Quick Summary

FolderSpark is a handy security tool to protect your sensitive files and folders. It's easy to use, small in size, and has both an installer and portable version.

"Not really secure."

Pros: It is free. So thanks to the author for developing it.

Cons: It is really simple to defeat the folder lock. I will not disclose how to here, as some people may actually wish to use this for the most basic protection. This is not recommended for sensitive documents.

Other Thoughts: If you want real protection, you have to go with the many well established encryption programs, many of which offer free or perfectly adequate free versions of their paid software.
