I have the same problem with my Protected folder 1.3 PRO, I cannot protect any folder - "for system stability, this file should not be protected".


Extremely disappointed! I have paid for a non-working app!


Please help,

Was the issue below ever resolved?

My external drive H:/ has 5 folders. All except one can be placed into protected folder. The path for all folders is the same: "H:/<folder name>".

The folder that cannot be placed in the protected folder gets this error message:

Receiving error "Lock 1 item, 1 failed" when adding folder.
Pressing the detail button results in last operation error message "For system stability, his file should not be protected"

What is the resolution to this?
