terms of access rights, a file or a folder locked by WinSesame keeps the same
permissions as the original file or folder in clear. Encrypting a file does not
prevent a person who can access this file with the corresponding rights from
copying, renaming or deleting it as they might have done with the file in the
clear. That person simply cannot open this file even from another computer if
they do not know the password and do not have the possible digital key required
to open it.
Files and folders protected by WinSesame can be backed
up like any other. It is advisable to use WinSauonnement on computers using
WinSesame because this software is interconnected with WinSesame and will
command WinSesame to close all protected files and folders before starting the
backup, thus avoiding any risk of backing up confidential data in the clear. The
reluctance to have redundant backups of highly confidential data therefore
WinSesame fully protects you against data theft.
