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. 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.
Folder Castle 2.2 is available for download today at no charge from www.magneticsoft.com. You can try its fully-functional trial version for 15 days before you have to buy it. The product costs $39.95 (US) for a single-user license. Folder Castle 2.2 is available for the Windows platform and works well on Windows VISTA, 2003, XP, 2000.
