Hide-A-Folder is a low level security application. It is used best in an environment where the security of the data is not of the utmost importance. The idea is to be able to keep your information away from prying eyes, snooping employees, or kids who may accidentally damage or alter your files. It works by making folder(s) invisible, which can be made visible easily by anyone with skill or want. It features password protection and the ability to hide/show multiple folders at once.

Hi, I have downloaded the Hide-a-folder 2.5 demo version. I hid the folder and it worked perfectly alright.

But, the next time, I tried to make it visible, I couldn't.

I dont know, why???

But, I did some R&D, and came to the conclusion, that, may be the preferences got deleted undesirably, and that's why it is not showing up the files and folders, that I have hid.

Any solution to get back my data. Am using Mac OS 9.2. I can see the stuff thru Find option (Sherlock), but could not access, as it shows the msg. that stuff is inside an invisible folder.

Version 2.6

once a file is hidden and you cant get it to unhide from that application ... you should have norton utilities as that is a necessary application to maintaining your mac. as well as it includes a utility named Fast Find. type in the name of one of the hidden folders, access the details of the folder, it will show hidden if it is ... uncheck that box and click update. and repeat for each folder that is hidden that you need to recover. good luck

The program is better than the freeware version Funk Monkey for one simple reason: password encryption. However, the value of the program is minimal, at best, when other (and more powerful) alternatives are available for a little bit more money.
