Difference from internal Windows data protection features

A lot of advanced users believe that Hide Folders 2009 (as well as any
other third party folder protection software) is useless because Windows
has integrated file and folder lock features.

Well, indeed, you can lock folders with Windows XP/Vista and this folder
will be inaccessible by the other (unauthorized) users. But there are
some annoying limitations that you should be aware of:

1. Windows allows you to lock files and folders on NTFS volumes only. FAT and FAT32 are not supported.

2. It is impossible to hide folder or file with standard Windows facilities. Only file and folder lock is possible.

3. There is no way to make folder invisible but accessible which is
helpful for different security tasks like logging, private data
recording, backing up etc.

4. A system administrator can easily get access to the locked folders and files.

5. Windows XP home edition doesn't have a user interface to protect files and folders.

6. There is no files and folders password protection in Windows (except
the password you provide during Windows logon) - as soon as an
authorized user authenticate himself by logging on, s/he get access to
the protected files and folders. If you share your account with the
another users then you can't exploit Windows folder protection features.

Protection modes: Hide folder, Lock folder, Hide & Lock folder, Read Only

Hide - When you enable protection, the protected file or folder will not
be visible to a user, but it will be possible to access it if you know
the path to the object. This may be helpful when you want to hide
application folders but allow to run the applications from these
folders. E.g. you may hide Hide Folders 2009 application folder so
nobody will know about it, but if you type from the command prompt
"C:\Program Files\Hide Folders 2009\hf.exe", Hide Folders 2009 will run.

Lock - the protected file or folder will be visible but not accessible.
It is similar to built-in protection of Windows NT-based operating
systems on NTFS volumes. You can not use this protection method for
Windows, System and Hide Folders 2009 application folders.

Hide & Lock - The protected file or folder will not be visible to a
user and it will not be possible to access them. You can not use this
protection method for Windows, System32 and Hide Folders 2009
application folders.
