Thread: I need to hide a few folders in XP

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    I used to have ME and used a version of Hide Folders to hide a few "sensitive" folders that had a few "sensitive" pics in them.

    I am now using XP and my old version of Hide Folders will not work. I will need to buy version 2.00 they say.

    Does anyone know of a free utility that will do this easily ?

    Regards

    Well PGP may work or might be more than you want as it actually encrypts what you want...

    Why not just rename your porn pics folder to something boring like Ati driver update ?

    Works for me .

    Burn the "data" to CD or DVD.

    RW if you intend to change the contents frequently.

    why don't you try adding zip folder

    go to mydocs (for example) and right click. select new compressed folder. name as someting unintelligible...or whatever you want. then open the folder and go to file and add password.

    beware: people can still see what's in the folders, they just can't access them, so no obsure names..

    Thanks guys

    Lots of good suggestions.

    But I want to keep my files on my hard drive (I do back them up to CD-RW !)

    I was hoping there might be a free "hide my folders" porgram out there.

    As I said I used to use Hide Folders, it was so easy to use - just select the folders you wish to hide and then when you boot up, they are not visiible. Click on a couple of keys and voila ! the folders and the files within them appear !
