Which is the maximum size of folders that WinSesame can protect?

WinSesame can lock folders whose volume depends on both the size of the largest files, the number of files in the folder and the amount of contiguous memory that Windows can allocate to the program at this time without exceeding 2 GB. WinSesame can lock and encrypt folders containing up to 5000 files. In practice, these limits should not prevent protecting all of the documents on a computer since for reasons of compatibility with the different file systems, no software creates a file greater than 2 GB. If it is necessary to lock folders containing more than 2GB of data, these are therefore necessarily contained in several files of compatible size that it suffices to lock independently or to classify in sub-folders which can be locked without problem. This has the added benefit of faster access to protected data and increased security by avoiding unnecessary unlocking of an entire large file. In practice, when a folder contains a large number of files, you will directly lock the folder, and when a folder contains large files, you will independently lock the files.
