Hide Folder Review

Lock and hide folders from Windows Explorer
A review of Hide Folder by Tina de Pierre

Hide Folder is security software for Windows which creates a secure and easy-to-use system whereby folders and files may be locked and indeed hidden from users without knowledge of or in posession of the password required to access those folders.

Setting Hide Folder up is quick and easy, requiring you to simply select the folders you would like to protect and then providing the program interface with a password you should remember for future access.

Folders can be setup in a way to make them "disappear" from view of anybody accessing your system and under the configuration menu, you're given the ability to change the password incase your data has been compromised.

The latest version of Hide Folder will detect which version of Windows you're running and tailor the setup of the application to suit whatever that version may be, ie. Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Hide Folder also supports logging of usage of the application and by analyzing the log files, inform you if anybody has been trying to access the hidden files and folders with a false password.

Hide Folder is software which can hide folders.
