Folders are never truly hidden with this odd little folder utility, which only does a superficial job of preventing access. Hide Private Folder's simple interface is little more than four function buttons over a folder list. No matter your user experience level, you're going to figure this one out in a minute. You'll also figure out how to defeat it in another minute.
Hide Private Folder promises to make your folders invisible and inaccessible. Well, it accomplishes neither. Like a magician, it can fool some people, but experienced users will find those hidden folders quickly. Implementing it is easy enough. You just click the Add button, browse to a folder, then click the Hide button. It just takes a few seconds. Taking a folder out of hiding is just as easy as you merely select the folder from the list and press Unhide.
Our testers found that if the folder is on the desktop, it won't disappear until the desktop is refreshed. Until then, the folder and its contents are still accessible. They also found shortcuts to files in hidden folders still access the files. Finally, the folder never disappears from view under DOS.
Hide Private Folders might fool your children, but this tool isn't going stop experienced users. The demo allows only two hidden folders, but we think you'll uninstall this application before you reach that limit.
Hide Private Folders is a cute tool that hides your private folders easily. With Hide Private Folders, you can hide your private folders and then prevent accessing by anyone else to your private files.
Hide Private Folders does not change and move the folders, and does not change Windows system files. You can not lose your files. It is easy to use. Add a folder to the folders list and then hide it, and then the folder will be invisible.
