Being an overall excellent operating system, Windows XP does have some versions that limit users control capabilities to a bare minimum. For instance, Windows XP Home offers a great set of multimedia and general features, but lacks the degree of flexibility that many advanced users would definitely appreciate. For instance, the Home version will not allow you to set file and folder access right, which is a common method of parental control if no third-party software is used. If you want your Windows Home to be just as powerful in this respect as the full-featured Professional edition, all you need is File Security Manager!
File Security Manager is a compact application that reveals the hidden potential of cheaper Windows XP versions and enables you to have full control over the way your files and folders are accessed and used. This tool integrates into Windows Explorer and provides the necessary controls for quick configuration of access permissions for files and folders on your system. Intermediate users will appreciate the access configuration wizard, which will guide them through the process, and advanced users will be able to get the job done in mere seconds! In addition, File Security Manager features a «secure deletion» function, which will delete files beyond recovery by any specialized software, and an advanced file attributes panel, which gives you access to those attributes that even the top versions of Windows XP do not reveal to users. And, of course File Security Manager can be used as a typical file manager for copying, moving and renaming files and folders.
File Security Manager is an affordable and intuitive problem solver. If you are happy with your Windows XP Home, but need that control over access permissions, this great software is just what the doctor ordered for you!
