UPDATE: We are temporarily suspending this update pending investigation of the reports that it keeps some files hidden after unlocking a password-protected folder until the Master password is entered. If you don't experience such a problem, keep using version 18.4. If you do experience this problem, please uninstall version 18.4, restart the computer, and then download and install the previous version 18.3 using the Download link on top of this web page. We will make an updated version that corrects this problem available when we have a fix ready. Thank you for your patience.

This update offers a Korean language translation as well as several improvements and corrections.
As usual, the trial version of Folder Guard 18.4 comes with a free license for 30 days of full use. If you have not tried it yet, please feel free to download it and give it a try.
And, of course, if you have purchased your Folder Guard license within the last 12 months, you can upgrade to this version free of charge (for the earlier purchasers the 50% upgrade discount is also available.)
