Create, access, or delete hidden folders.

Overview

Houdini is a simply designed app to let you take full advantage of Mac OS X's "hidden folder" and "hidden file" ability. It allows you to create, access, move, reveal or delete hidden folders and files.

  • The ability to toggle the visibility of hidden files with the "Toggle File Visibility" button
  • The ability to browse hidden files with the "Browse Hidden Files" button
  • Use keyboard shortcuts to toggle hidden files
  • Create new hidden folders and drag files into them via Houdini
  • Open hidden files through Houdini
  • Create hidden text files with Houdini
  • Explore system files and the music on iPods using Houdini
  • Reveal your hidden files and see them again

"Like any true Mac user, I had failed to back up my files" This is NOT like a true Mac user. I think anyone that isn't smart enough to back up their files isn't smart enough to write any program I want on my system. So anyone that thinks about it will give this program a wide berth.

I'm getting a crash when I run Houdini 1.0; any idea when you'll have this compatible with Lion? This software is really useful, thanks for creating it!

I loved this app because everytime i want to open some flash memory and i delete a file it goes to a .Trashes file (which is hidden) but the deleted file stays there so i can't permanently delete it because of the 'hidden' issue only in a PC... which I hate (to depend on a PC) The problem in my case was that I could see the hidden file but i couldn't delete it, hope you can help me with this problem. Ty!! :))

Don't like new MacUpdate? Back to old design.
