Editors' reviewThis program offers several ways to protect your files and folders from would-be intruders. True to its name, Hide Folder can quickly obscure any files, folders, and drives so other users won't see them on your computer. The program contains a wizard for walking you through the process, but the interface is so straightforward you may not ever need it. If you want additional protection, you also can encrypt documents using one of nine secure algorithms, including Blowfish and Rijndael. Unfortunately, you can't encrypt entire folders. If you want to let a program such as an antiviral application access locked folders, you can add it to a list of trusted processes. Other users won't be able to access Hide Folder unless they have your password, but, just to be safe, you can run it in stealth mode to completely obscure its presence. Hide Folder will be of use to anyone who wants to keep data private.
