Want to keep a file from being edited? Lock it. Want to keep a folder from being changed? Lock it. Pick your files in Finder, [Command] + I, check a box, and you're on your way. Seems easy enough. Unlock 'em? Just reverse the process. Okay, until you start dealing with folders that have some locked files, some unlocked files, several sub-folders, and so on. Now it's gotten complicated.

Locker is a tool that lets you lock and unlock documents, images—any files really—as well as folders. It's got a drag-and-drop interface, which means it's super easy to just grab those files and lock or unlock them. Choose a single file, several files, or a whole folder and all its subfolders. You've become a veritable locksmith (or security guard) on your system.

Locker is a free download. It's a Mac application, and runs under OS X version 10.4 or better on both PowerPC and Intel systems. And you're a late adopter, they've still got a version you can run on Jaguar (10.2).
