FolderMasker

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Though FolderMasker has an awkward user interface, it successfully hid our folders from view. Now, reversing the action was another story.

The program's interface operates in two parts, which would have been more convenient combined into one. You first have to choose whether you want to mask or unmask a folder. From there, you're taken to an interface for selecting your folder and applying your password. In our tests, we were able to quickly hide a selected folder without any issues. Unmasking the same folder follows the same two-part steps. You're supposed to select the masked folder from a list and enter your password to make the folder reappear. Unfortunately for us, our masked folder did not appear on the list. We clicked on the Help link provided. According to the publisher's site, our masked file was supposed to show up as a Recycle Bin item, but we could not locate it.

Despite being freeware, FolderMaster can't handle one of its primary tasks. It's not worth the risk.
