Editors' Review

There's a flaw that prevents this easy-to-use freeware program from completely hiding folders. Revosoft Cache is one of the most straightforward programs we've come across, and even the lack of a Help file won't prevent any user from understanding its simple operation.

Installation is quick, and you're asked to set a password before the first launch. The compact interface holds only two sections: a pull-down menu to select a drive, and a tree menu to select the folder you want to hide. Once selected, you just have to hit the Hide button. On the right, hidden folders are listed.

To reveal a folder, simply select it and push a button. We were in love with how easy it is to use this program, but a quick scan for the folder using Windows Explorer quickly uncovered a flaw. Searching for the folder in the chosen directory by heading to My Computer, then drilling down through Documents and Settings to get to My Documents, proved that Revosoft Cache was able to hide items. However, if the option to view hidden folders is checked in Windows Explorer, you can still view folders hidden by this app. Worse, some testers found that hidden folders were still visible in the My Documents listing under Desktop.

It's a shame that this freeware software, which was published in 2006, can't completely hide folders from view. We liked how easy it was to use, but can't recommend a program so easily bypassed.
