Ok. Way off-topic for a Windows 7 forum, but I don't know where else to turn.
Does anyone reading this have experience with either Protect Folder or Universal Shield from Everstrike? Both can password protect and encrypt folders and files. Universal shield can also hide them plus some other stuff. But there is nothing on the product definitions saying whether protected files on a shared (e.g., Network Accessible Storage) drive can be accessed by more than one PC (assuming the software is installed on each). I have that need. Nor is it said whether a file locked by one of the products can be unlocked by the other. Both products cost the same so neither has a cost advantage over the other.
Protect Folder does everything I want on a single PC but I don't think the sharing I need works. Does anyone out there know?
BTW, I did ask Everstrike support but have not heard back from them.
