Editors' Review


WinMend Folder Hidden is an interesting security utility that can safely hide any file or folder on a Windows partition or removable device, which covers most users' hard drives and external drives as well as flash drives, memory cards and sticks, micro devices, and anything else you can store a file on. Your files and folders stay safe and hidden even if they're reinstalled on another computer, and they can't be seen or accessed by other programs and operating systems. You can enable password protection for specific files and folders or whole volumes of data. WinMend claims that "safety first" was a guiding principle in developing Folder Hidden and promises it will never damage the files and folders it secures.

The program's interface is fairly basic, just a tabbed window with directory-style list and a few simple commands, but there are some customization options, such as the ability to change the layout's colors. One of the advantages WinMend claims for Folder Hidden is its ability to quickly hide virtually any size folder or file, up to dozens of gigabytes. It certainly performs its duty quickly and effectively, hiding folders from view and retrieving them when you enter your selected password.

There are lots of reasons to hide data, not the least of which is that it's part of a general PC security regimen that could head off a hassle some day. WinMend Folder Hidden is freeware. It works with 64-bit versions of Windows, including Vista, so Windows 7 shouldn't be a problem.

"Very efficient and easy to use."

You can hide and unhide your folders very easily
Good graphics


Not fast to open the program


Updated on Sep 27, 2011

The software has been working great since I installed it one year ago.
The new version changes nothing, keeps working fair and lets you choose between more languages.
Folders appear and disappear instantly, while a "Winmend~Folder~Hidden" folder is created in local disk C, without affecting the System in any way.
WinMend Folder Hidden can be tried at any time, in my opinion.

"avoid this one"

none, this is rubbish


It hid my folder and then later said it was the first time I had used it, so I lost my folder. Support sent one standard email, then one diagnostic how-to, but nothing more.


Back up you folder before you hide it - which totally defeats the object.
Not just useless, positively dangerous.

""This program does not work""

September 17, 2011  |  By donvancouver

 |  Version: WinMend Folder Hidden


If it worked it would be great.


It created a hidden folder"Winmend~Folder~Hidden" on everyone of my " NINE" Hard Drives
I could not delete these files even when the program has been uninstalled.


I did a test using Winmend on a small folder. I tried to hide it and then tried to unhide it.
I did nothing in between.
The software set the folder to Winmend~Folder~Hidden
And the software put an entry with this name "Winmend~Folder~Hidden" on everyone of my " NINE" Hard Drives. I could not delete these folders and spent several hours trying different delete methods. I finally managed to get rid of them by using IObit unlocker.
I would never trust this program even if it worked on any critical data.
