Alfa File Protector Network Edition 2004
|by Alfa Corporation|
Alfa File Protector (AFP) is a unique component / library, for Windows developers, for integrating file protection and file hiding in developers' applications, without having to bother about the complexity of the Windows' internals (how it works, how to filter it etc.). AFP component sends, so called, protection items to the driver, which are used on-the-fly by the driver to allow / deny a file operation to occur.AFP can deny file open, file create, file replace, file read, file write, file/directory rename, file delete, directory create, directory delete, query file/directory attributes (will preserve directoryattributes for the sake of FS recognition, which is a must for Windows file systems. For more info, see the online FAQ), change attributes, query last access date, query modification date, query creation date, set last access date, set modification date, set creation date; can hide files (make them invisible, but still accessible if the user / program knows the exact location of it), and can make files fully inaccessible (invisible, and not accessible even if the user / program knows the exact location).AFP can filter file patterns using wild cards, can use more than one pattern per entry (e.g. *.exe;*.dll), can filter process names, can filter exclusion filters for file names and processes, as well.AFP also support tagging a password with an entry. This way an entry is protected from unauthorized users, and makes it easy to create multiple user interface in no time. Passwords help protect items from being deleted, changed and even listed, unless the user known the exact password. AFP provides so many options, that help developers make programs easier, faster and in a more efficient style, like multiple patterns per entry, process filtering, the variety of file actions to choose, password protected items, patterns and passwords limited only by availablememory, network file protection and a lot more.In 5.0, added support for Unicode characters. Now, programs using AFP can protect files with Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hebrew and Arabic names, with no problem.In 6.0, we've added complete support for protection and hiding of files on removable media, under NT/2K/XP.In version 7.0 added complete support for filtering file protection by user and by the time of the day.Note: The demo version will work until July 2004. After that date it should be remove from the system.
