Protect single file/folder in different modes

By using the following features, you can specify different protection to a file/folder for different users, or at different date time.

  • Users & Groups
  • Schedule Options
  • Trust Apps

Users & Groups

For any of the protected items, you can specify users and groups to it, and then the protection will only be enabled for those users you have specified.

File Lock supports local users, local groups, domain users and domain groups.

Schedule Options

You can use the schedule option of any protected item, to control the protection daily, weekly or monthly.

Internet time can be enabled for schedule options, to avoid bypassing protection by changing system time.

Trust Apps

Trust Apps, a.k.a. trusted programs, are programs that can always access the protected files and folders.

You also can set the users & groups and schedule options for trusted programs.

A single file or folder can be protected multiple times, each time with different users and/or schedule options. Thus you can protect the file or folder in different ways for different users, or in different hours, or both.


  • Allow a file 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM every day, lock it all other times.
  • Prevent guests from using a folder; password protect the folder for all other users.
  • Allow the limited users to modify a file every Monday; the file can only be opened for read by the limited users all other times, only administrator can modify the file all the time.
