Folder Guard 9.1


Folder Guard 9.1 has an interface, which is good enough for most of its users. Of course, more can always be expected to be done. The menu bar includes five menus, the first two of which are related to all the protection and restriction functions that the program offers. The View bar is displayed to the left and duplicates the View menu function. The protected files and folders are listed in the middle of the window. At the bottom, just like Windows Explorer, the Status bar is situated. All the actions which you would possibly do have icons on the top of the program. Three of them show the access attributes which can be assigned to the selected items.
