MS "My Private Folder"

  KW2K 23:15 25 Sep 2006

I recently downloaded from the Microsoft web site a program for installing a "My Private Folder" onto my pc. I'm sure it was available if you agreed to using the Windows Validation tool. I want to get a hold of this program again and cannot find it any where on the Microsoft Web Site. Does anyone know where I can find it ?

Hi Crossbow7, again that's exactly what I was looking for but it looks as if it's gone from the MS web site, pitty that as it is a cracking program as long as you did'nt forget your password ! I wonder if anyone out there has downloaded and kept the executable for this little program which they could e-mail to me ?? It's my last call I guess !!

Thanks again.

following an avalanche of complaints from corporate customers. The security implications of allowing individual network users to create secure private desktop folders hadn't been properly thought through by Microsoft before they released the tool for download.

Once they realised what they had done they took it offline and buried it. By that time legions of people had it safely on their hard drive however, and I'm one of them.
