Very good product, howerver...

I could not find any guidance whatsoever on the use of this product. I backed up the three or four files that I wanted to hide and encrypt with the product and went with it the best I could. It is the old thing of “anything is ok as long as we all understand it” - which is why there should be a short user instruction page (not even a “manual” — just a page).

For instance — once the product has the location folder designated that you want to use, and you have entered the files, you MUST put a checkmark next to them under “protection status”. When you do this, the file is protected and hidden. If you do not do this and close the software, the files or folders remain visible and accessable. I did it once then deleted the files that were still in the folder, assuming they had been hidden by the software. This is incorrect — the next time I opened the software I could not retrieve the files because it said they were "not accessable". Before you depend on it, use test files or backup the files you want to put in there and test, test, test.

Once you understand it, it is very effective.

Please write and instruction page for new users!!

Missing files

Downloaded the app and it worked great until I had to do an OS upgrade, as soon as that was done all my “protected” files are now missing, they dont show up in the app to “un-protect” and I can’t find them anywhere…fix this ASAP, all my files are gone! Do not use this app until they have repaired this fail…I have emaied customer service as well, no response.
