Hide Files Description
If you share your computer with others, there are likely some files or folders that you would like to keep private. While Windows does allow you to hide certain items, they can still be accessed easily by pretty much anyone.
Hide Files is a straightforward utility that can conceal files or folders and keep them away from prying eyes. It makes them completely inaccessible and only allows you to unlock them with the right password.
Hide sensitive items with just a couple of mouse clicks
When you launch the application for the first time, you are required to provide a master password, which will need to be entered every time you start the program in the future. However, it does not seem to be possible to change this passkey.
Hiding and revealing files or folders is very straightforward, as you only have to add them to the list and press the Lock or Unlock buttons. Nevertheless, it would have helped if it were possible to import them with drag and drop actions.
User-friendly, versatile tool that can protect your privacy
Hide Files allows you to lock files or folders on internal or external hard drives, SSDs, USB flash drives and even memory cards. The operation is completed very quickly, even when dealing with gigabytes of data.
The app does not offer any other advanced features, so novices should find it to be very accessible. However, it must be noted that there is no way to recover a forgotten password, so you should make sure it is written down somewhere to avoid losing access to hidden items.
Simple software utility that gets the job done
All in all, Hide Files is a good choice for users who wish to ensure sensitive files remain private. Even complete novices should have no trouble getting accustomed to this application, but it does lack a couple of important features.
