DisApPeAr has been totally remade in Cocoa. It now features things such as multiple accounts so you can have multiple lists of file, supports drag and drop so you can just drag a file right onto the list it is much more reliable and includes a recover lost file button in the help menu which can be locked with a master password along with all the other preferences. Please note thogh

HELP!
I love the app. I've been using it for years.
Today I open Disappear and notice my folder I have hidden has a "?" in the hidden field? Where did my folder go? I removed the folder from disappear thinking it would unhide the folder and I'll just hid it again. But that didn't work. How do I get this folder back?

Thanks

I made several accounts on my computer one for each type of file I was trying to hide. I was a little tipsy well drunk when I did this and cant remember all the passwords. I tried deleting the app but files did not come back. does any one know how to recover a password.

Hi, I have installed DisApPeAr 1.0 and stupidly then hidden it... not now knowing how to make it reappear. What's the simplest way? I have placed a file within it but can't now retrieve that file, until I can put DisApPeAr back on my desktop.
I should have left it on the desktop, protected by its password.... :0(

I love this little app. simple and handy.

It wont protect against those who know how to find hidden files, but for casual use it is great. Hide your personal data, emails, letters.. and, well, porn. enjoy :)

Shhhhhh!

That porn stuff is supposed to be confidential. That's the whole point. C'mon, man, don't ruin it for everybody...

Just gave DisApPeAr a "test drive"; it works just fine. I like it! I think I'll keep it.
As others, including the developer, have pointed out, a savvy Mac user can find the hidden file/folder. But for all practical purposes, most prying eyes would be unaware that the hidden file/folder is on your hard disk
(you could change the name of your file or folder before hiding it, that would make it more difficult to find).
If you really want to make files/folders inaccessable to everyone, you'll need to encrypt them. But there are a number of good, easy to use encryption programs available.

Hi,

I never wrote a 1.02 version and the one Macupdate has linked is an older version. If you want the current version 1.0 get it here: http://www.widgetfactor.com/downloads/DisApPeAr.zip

Well, I thought I'd give this app a try but neither the download nor the developer's website are available now. I guess DisApPeAr has just disappeared!
Oh well, another ephemeral software developer.

Developer's website is accessible and the download link works, just checked both.

You're right, they ARE both still there! I tried accessing both the download and the website twice just a little while ago and both were inaccessible; I got a message on my desktop telling me that my Mac couldn't connect both times.
I just tried again after your(Administrator) posting, above, and no problem! Don't know what was wrong(????).

^ didn't finish writing what to note: Please note that hiding files is a good way to keep files from the average computer goer but it will not prevent someone who knows what they are doing from retrieving them.

Bearing in mind that this isn`t real stealth to someone who `knows` Macs - I like it.
I have had no trouble with it btw.
