SuperFolder is a useful software that helps to create folders that no one will be able to move, copy, delete, and rename. You can add files and folders to your super folder and no one can modify or access those items, even if your folder is visible to them. It basically lets you create a folder with preset names, that are forbidden by Windows. That means, you cannot create a folder with name, like Con, Prn, Com1- Com9, etc. manually, as Windows shows error for these folders (invalid name). But using SuperFolder, you can create such type of folders, and can add files and folders to them. It will be helpful as your super folder will not be deleted, as it happens when you are in hurry. An error message will be shown to you, like visible in screenshot below.
