Easy File Protector Editor's Review

Easy File Protector does exactly what it says on the tin – it protects your files, easily.

Installation of Easy File Protector was pretty smooth, but did consist of one restart; however it wasn’t really a problem. After opening, I was slightly confused as to what to do first or how the application works, however to my joy, it was in fact very easy!

Down the left hand side of the window is a list of user accounts currently created on your Windows system, and below that is a timetable. The Users section was brilliant; it was purely and simply a case of checking a tick box to specify whether protection restrictions apply to a user account or not – really useful if you want all files available to one user but inaccessible to all other users of that PC. All user accounts are ticked by default.

The Timetable feature is something that could be very useful for some users, but not so much to me. It simply allows you to specify what times and days the restrictions are active and inactive. I could see the use of this, for example allowing access to all files after children have gone to bed, however the Timetable feature isn’t something I feel I’d personally use very often – a nice feature nevertheless!

Adding and removing files and folders is a really quick and simple process; you can simply drag and drop individual or multiple files into Easy File Protector, drag and drop an entire directory, or use Add File/Folder tools to select and add files to the Restricted Files list. Deleting can be done just as easily, by right clicking a file or directory and clicking delete. The ease of Easy File Protector makes it really accessible to everyone.

When setting a password, I was a little surprised that the password is only used to re-open the application and prevent unauthorised access. I was actually expecting a password entry request when attempting to open a protected file. This could be slightly inconvenient if authorised users try to access a file under a different user account. I would like to see a feature in future versions of Easy File Protector allowing temporary file access.

Overall, as a quick and easy solution to protecting your files, Easy File Protector is a very good application that could easily be used and understood by most users. Some users may not require its Users and Timetable features, whereas some may find these really handy – Easy File Protector caters to most user’s needs. I prefer Easy File Protector to the built in Windows encryption system a lot, as it’s a lot easier to use and understand and much more flexible. I’d give Easy File Protector an 8/10.
