Hide-A-File is a Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME/XP computer security software program that allows you to hide files and folders so they cannot be accessed. You then need a password to retrieve the hidden files or folders. It can be used for several purposes:
1) Protecting confidential files in case your computer is stolen.
2) Protecting confidential files when you are away from your computer
3) Access control, to allow you to control who can use what programs by hiding executable programs.
4) Preventing hackers form accessing your files removely through an Internet connection.
With Hide-A-File, you compile a list of files and folders you want to be able to hide. Once you have added files and folders to the list, you can hide and unhide them with just two clicks of the mouse. Warning: All files are hidden on the C drive, regardless of where they were originally. For example, if you have a file on a flash drive and you use Hide-A-File to hide it, the file will be moved to the C drive and hidden. Do not use Hide-A-File to hide files on backup disks or flash drive. If you lose your C hard drive, you will lose any files hidden by Hide-A-File.
Hide-A-File is available as shareware ($25 individual fee, with volume discounts available). Try it for a month to see if you like it before you have to pay for it. Just download the install file to your computer, then run the file like a program by double-clicking on the install file in Windows Explorer or My Computer to install Hide-A-File. Remember that complete instructions are provided for uninstalling Hide-A-File if you decide that you do not like it. Hide-A-File runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/ME.
