Microsoft withdraws Private Folder

Posted on Sunday, July 23 2006 @ 15:57:01 CEST by


BetaNews writes Microsoft has withdrawn its new Private Folder application after a load of criticism from security experts and IT admins.
he program was introduced last week as a free download for those who verify their operating system as genuine through Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage Program.

Private Folder was designed to hide data from the hard drive in addition to protecting it with a password. However, the application quickly drew concern from administrators who feared users would lose their password and not be able to unlock their files. In addition, parents voiced worry that kids could use Private Folder to hide content they download.
