This event is more common than you may think, especially in offices where one computer is often shared by more than one user. Fortunately there’s now a little utility called File Anti-Copy that will prevent a file loss or removal from happening. And not only this! It also makes a good anti-spy tool that will disallow other people to make screenshots of your document, copy and paste your text.
File Anti-Copy is prettu simple and requires no time to learn. Even people with little or no knowledge of computers can protect their files from copying in a couple of minutes because the interface is so uncomplicated and friendly. Once you start the program, it’ll ask you to type in username and password in order to access the configuration window. Then to protect a file, you only need to add it to the locked file list, change Anti-Copy Status to ‘Active’ and hit OK – all in all three clicks! Additional options in Setup allow you to enable Alpha Anti-Copy Protection of all files, which means that the files can be opened and read but cannot be copied or captured as screenshots. Another option – Autostart Anti-Copy will automatically launch the program at Windows startup, to protect your files and data all the time.
