Currently the lock all folders options only locks the folders for the current folder set. But if you wanted to shut down everything, there's no way to do this via the GUI other than locking and unlocking espionage for each folder set you have. This is quite unacceptably slow if you have a lot of folder sets and want to shut everything down quickly. I've found a way to detach these from the command line by doing:

hdiutil detach <device>

And I'll probably resort to writing a script to do this if my suggestion isn't implemented. Thanks for the product! :)

Hello, yes, it is a good suggestion and already on our to do list.

So it will be implemented eventually but I cannot commit to any timeframe.

Normally, as per my previous reply to you, users will have two folder sets, one "real" and one "emergency", and you will always be using the real one, the emergency is just a standby folder set, so normally you will be working with one folder set all the time, and therefore rarely need to lock multiple, but still, the suggestion is good.
