    Why not use a regular file locker? I mean, if this thing included over media kinds of files, it might be more useful.

    This is not a complete report, just some observations while beginning to use Applian Video Padlock.

    It works smoothly & fairly intuitively. Easy to install. For me, the activation registration was done automatically.

    • For Full Encryption, set it first in ‘Settings’ before adding files to Video Padlock.
    • It WILL encrypt non-video files but asks if you really want to do that. You can check a box to not ask again.
    • For safety it won’t lock ‘.exe’ command files.
    • After encrypting (locking), the filenames on your computer are changed to filenames like ’46-4H-3W-63-5I-64-2N-4A-43-4I.lck’ approximately 3 times longer than original but the same filesize(KB/MB). I attempted to add a file with a 70+ digit filename. It balked and said the filename exceeded the 255 limit. I shortened the filename to 4 letters+ext and it worked. The 255 limit may have been a problem with my computer/Win10 Home Ver.
    • If you Unlock (return them to your computer) the date will change to the current date & time, not the original.
    • If you move or delete those files, they will not open in the Video Padlock. However, the moved & encrypted files can be dragged back into the Video Padlock and then they will open as before from within Video Padlock.
    • Files deleted from within the Video Padlock did not go to my Recycle Bin.

    Overall, this program does what it advertises. I’ll keep it for a while. Thank you Ashraf and your Sharewareonsale.

    I am having difficulty installing the product. I click Yes to install it but nothing further happens. I’ve tried it multiple times without any success. It doesn’t even get to the typical Installation page.
