Hide Folders is a very easy to use program that allows you to hide your favorite files and folders, or simply block access to them by unauthorized persons. It has also been found that this feature prevents accidental deletion of important information. Folders associated with files invisible to the user cannot be deleted after changing the folder.
Hide Folders allows you to specify up to 64 folders and files on your hard drive that you want to hide from your curious eyes. You can hide, modify or delete each one just by clicking the mouse, since they are hidden or blocked with a few clicks. Furthermore, the program cannot track you as well as prevent outsiders from uninstalling the operating system. Although Hide Folders is a more complex feature, it is easy to use.
Folders can be hid for a variety of reasons - but not all of the time. Using a rootkit detecting tool such as RootkitRevealer, any files hidden by that function can be detected quickly. You can also access all protected folders from any Live-CD if you connect your hard drive to another operating system. Furthermore, system folders cannot be hidden as objects.
