Surely you don't imagine I rely on Controlled folders for all my security.

That's not the point. The problem is, its protection is very, very specific, and attacks successfully avoid it.

I'm not aware of any way to circumvent Controlled Folders other than by replacing an existing ".exe" image that's authorized to access those folders. An attack that can go and modify your executables without detection has pretty much taken over your system no matter what measures you have in place.

Controlled Folders will prevent any unknown executable from causing harm, and that probably accounts for the large majority of attacks.

Hi Sean,

Just boot the system via a USB standalone OS and you own that disk if it is not encrypted.

That's what Bitlocker is for.
