Today, I will be reviewing a tool which will help you to hide your data efficiently. We generally need to hide our data, and specially when our system is being used by many of our friends or collogues, as to maintain privacy. This review will help the users who are in search of tool to hide their data . This tool is called Free Hide Folder.
We have already written about hiding the desktop shortcut icon in ‘Hide Icons’ and hiding nay process running on your system in ‘BlindBossKey-Lite’ but this tool might help you in a different way. Now, a question must have arisen in your mind that why to go for a tool if we already have a hide option in our Operating System, which can do this for us. There are some loop hole in the default hide option offered by our Operating system like after hiding a folder by the default option you can still search them, or you can easily see them by changing the settings in the Folder options. But this will not happen with this tool, if you have hidden a folder using this tool then it will not appear in any situation or in other words settings of the folder options will not effect it.
As you can see from the above snapshot, that how the application window of the tool look likes. After completing the installation it will ask you about a new password which should be memorized as every time when you will try to access this tool it will ask for that password. In order to make any folder hidden you will have to select that folder from the add option. As you will select the folder, it will be enlisted in a list in the middle of the application window. Now to hide that folder, click the hide option present on the toolbar or you can do the same with the help of file menu.
You can also change your password with the option of set password available on the toolbar. Besides its hiding feature you can create the backup of that data as if you believe that you might forget that data then you can assign a destination in your system, where it will create the backup of that folder. It will create the backup only when you uninstall it and the folder was still hidden by that tool at the time of uninstallation.
The size of this tool is very small i.e. around 1 Mb but it is not portable and it will few take seconds to get installed, then you can access it from the desktop shortcut icon. This freeware is compatible with all the versions of Windows as it has been checked with Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate edition.
