3 Do not create Lockngo on locked disk Usually, Lockngo copies itself to the locked disk what allows you to unlock it. But for more security you can disable it. Please see details here.
4 File name with disk owner information

Lockngo Professional allows you to define a special file with owner details. You can use this file to include your personal information and contact details, so that if the drive is found by anyone, it can be safely returned to you.

Your personal details file will be excluded from the locking process and will remain available even when your drive is locked.

The file can be of any type (textual, graphical, etc.). Make sure you keep the file size below 150 KB and its name contains only ASCII characters (don't use national alphabets in the file name).

10 Program name

The name of the application that should be executed. Do not include drive letter.

If your application is located outside the root directory of your removable drive, you must include the relative path to it, starting from the root level, omitting the drive letter.

If your application requires some command line parameters, include them right after its name.

11 Windows mode Defines the window mode in which your application will open.
12 Close this program when disk is locking Defines whether Lockngo will try to close the application before locking a disk. In case your application fails to terminate (for example while waiting for user input) Lockngo will make ten attempts to close it, waiting one second between each attempt. If the application still fails to shut down, Lockngo will disregard it and will start the locking process.
