Private Folder Pulled

The picture says it all.

Microsoft removed the free Private Folder download. Maybe not legally, but I imagine it is available for download somewhere.

See the Informationweek article, "Microsoft Backs Off, Axes Private Folder Tool", for more.


Debate over Microsoft's decision raged on a number of blogs last week. Most who weighed in agreed that Private Folder, while useful for home users, was a nightmare for systems administrators, as the tool has no feature for recovering forgotten passwords.

Griping about not having a way to recover a password. Hello, if you are looking to have something secure, isn't that a good thing?
