Hide Folders is an innovative software application which enables you to password protect all the private information on your hard drive. You can swiftly make your files and folders inaccessible, invisible or protect them from modification or removal. The protected folders or files are not accessible by users - no matter how they are trying to get in - locally or from the net. Effective protection mechanism, intuitive user interface, and set of fine-tuning options will suit the needs of everyone from novice Windows users to computer experts. Since 2001, our Hide Folder software products help our users to hide private files and folders from prying eyes.
With Hide Folders you can easily protect any number of folders and files on your computer. You can select any file or folder to protect from the program, drag-and-drop the desired files and folders from Windows Explorer into the Hide Folder window or protect the file or folder using Windows Explorer context menu.
A lot of advanced users believe that our hide folder software (as well as any other third party folder protection software) is useless because Windows has integrated file and folder lock features.
Well, indeed, you can lock folders with Windows and this folder will be inaccessible by the other (unauthorized) users. But there are some annoying limitations that you should be aware of:
Hide — When you enable protection, the protected file or folder will not be visible to a user, but it will be possible to access it if you know the path to the object. This may be helpful when you want to hide application folders but allow to run the applications from these folders. E.g. you may hide Hide Folders application folder so nobody will know about it, but if you type from the command prompt "C:\Program Files\Hide Folders 2012\hf.exe", Hide Folders 2012 will run.
Lock — the protected file or folder will be visible but not accessible. It is similar to built-in protection of Windows NT-based operating systems on NTFS volumes. You can not use this protection method for critical folders, like Windows, Windows\System32, C:\, Hide Folders application folder...
Hide & Lock — The protected file or folder will not be visible to a user and it will not be possible to access them. This protection mode unites Hide and Lock.
Read only — You can access the protected files and folders, but you cannot modify them. If you protect folder contents (using asterisk wildcard), you cannot copy files into the folder.
No protection — If you choose this method, your file or folder will remain unprotected. This method is recommended when you need to unprotect one folder temporarily. If you want to unprotect a folder forever, just remove it from the list.
