SysTools Folder Key – Tool to Lock and Unlock Folders
Review by on
Folder Key, a freeware SysTools product, aims to protect your privacy by allowing you to lock folders. From Folder Key’s wizard-like interface, you can quickly select a folder and easily lock it. From the same interfac,e you can quickly select the locked folder and easily unlock it.

Folder Key can also password protect folders. You have the option to enter a password during the folder lock process. The locked folder won’t be unlocked unless said password is provided. So by adding a password, you ensure that you and you alone can unlock a folder. If someone wants to unlock, that someone will fail because he doesn’t have the password.

The system requirements for running Folder Key are: 1GHz process or better (2.4GHz recommended); at least 512MB of RAM (1GB or more recommended); at least 5MB of free disk space; Windows operating system (latest edition and all previous versions). A very simple setup wizard will take you through the steps you need to take to install Folder Key on a Windows PC that meets these system requirements.

Speaking about wizards, you’ll be glad to know that Folder Key has a wizard-like interface. A wizard will take you through all the steps you need to take to lock a folder. A wizard will also take you through all the steps you need to take to unlock a folder. Watch the Quick Look video that accompanies this article to see how easy it is to lock and unlock a folder.

Once a folder is locked, it’s icon changes; instead of the default folder icon, you will see a padlock icon. Double click on a locked folder and nothing will happen. Right click it, select Open, and nothing will happen. That’s because locked folders cannot be opened. That’s the whole purpose of locking them – to keep others from accessing these folders.

Folder Key, as stated at the start of this article, is a freeware SysTools product. You can use it for free for as long as you want.

Easily, quickly, and conveniently lock and unlock folders with SysTools’ free Folder Key application. Put a password on locked folders to prevent others from unlocking them.

Modern PCs will easily meet this application’s system requirements. A wizard will help you install Folder Key on your Windows PC. A wizard will help you lock and, optionally, password protect folders. A wizard will help you unlock folders. Folder Key is free software.

Annoying “do you want to close the application?” prompt that cannot be disabled.
It would have been nice if you could password protect access to Folder Key itself.
