Editors' Review

Folder Hidden lets you keep important files and documents hidden or disguised and password protected, either on a hard drive or USB. The interface of this app is intuitive and clean, with large buttons to perform the various functions and a clear display of information. Choose between hiding your files completely or disguising them as a recycling bin, network drive, or My Computer to keep them safe and control who has access.

The first time you open Folder Hidden, you will be prompted to create a password. After that's done, you're ready to begin securing your files. Simply click the hide or disguise buttons and select the files you want to protect. You can even use this software to hide files on a USB or other external drive, so if you lose the device, no one will be able to access the information on it. Undoing the hiding and disguising is no problem, either, as you can just find the file you're looking for on the list in the app and click the unhide or undisguise link. The changes are effective immediately, and the app runs smoothly, overall.

Folder Hidden is free to try for seven days, and a two-year subscription costs only $26.88, making it a good deal for the excellent added security it provides.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Folder Hidden 2.0.0.1.
