Editors' review

Though this program houses private documents in a hidden folder, protection isn't as full-blown as we anticipated. HiddenTray Folder is quite confusing and requires an in-depth study session with the read-me file just to figure out where to begin. Since the program has no true interface, right-clicking the tray icon brings up menus for accessing password-protected as well as unprotected folder locations and spots for reminders, a calendar, start-up launching, and date and time additions to your Windows title bar. It's a hurdle to configure the protected folder's security, requiring more time in the read-me file. Once you get the hang of it, applying and removing protection is easy, but you'll have to fumble through your system just to access your folder--there are no shortcuts. When protection is active, the program effectively halts access to the documents, but files aren't completely out of sight; the Recent Documents list keeps them in plain view. Unfortunately, HiddenTray Folder doesn't encrypt documents, either, so we wouldn't recommend it for concealing highly sensitive data. The 14-day trial does offer some protection, but most users will want more safeguards and fewer hoops.
