PadLock opens a small window where you type in a password to unlock 
or lock your hard drive(s) or other device(s). The password is not 
visible in the window when your typing.

PadLock version 4.1 is not meant to be able to keep everyone out, if 
they know where to look they'll find the password(s). It's mainly to 
stop accidental deletion of files by you or anyone else who has 
access to your Amiga. Maybe there are young children around that know 
how to switch on your Amiga but don't know the damage they might be 
doing.
Just imagine if you accidentally formatted your hard drive instead of 
a floppy disk!

The passwords are stored in ENV:PadLock.prefs. Each drive to be 
locked is given a password. I thought that was better than having 
just one password for all drives, as then all files would be at risk 
when the padlock was off.

--------
Example ENV:PadLock.prefs file:

Fred
DH0:
Barny
DH1:
Tom
DH2:
Jerry
DH3:

Each password is followed by the drive or device name on the next 
line. The first password must be on the first line.

The ENV:PadLock.prefs file could also look like this:

Fred
Workbench:
Barny
Extras:
Tom
Art:
Jerry
Fun:

PadLock is case sensitive so if a password is Fred in the 
ENV:PadLock.prefs file, typing FRED or fred will not work.

--------
INSTALLATION:
1: Drag the PadLock icon to wherever you think is best for you.

2: Use a text editor to make your prefs file. I've included an
   example prefs file that you can change to suit your system setup.

3: Save your prefs file as 'ENV:PadLock.prefs' and ALSO as
   'ENVARC:PadLock.prefs'.

4: Copy the other files included to there correct Directories.

5: Add this line to your s:User-Startup file:

run >nil: sys:Rexxc/rx rexx:PadLock41.rexx set

This line will lock all the drives every time you boot your Amiga.

--------
USE:
When the PadLock icon is double clicked it opens a small window.
Just typing one of the passwords will unlock the corresponding drive.
e.g..
Fred
To Lock a drive type the password followed by the word 'ON'.
e.g..
Fred on

If you type a word that is not in the prefs file the window will 
close. (That's just to put people off trying to type in lots of 
different words hoping to find a password).
