Free Hide Folder is a Windows utility that enables you to protect your private data from prying eyes. This type of programs comes in handy if you share your computer with other people and wish to prevent them from accessing or altering your personal folders while you're away from the PC.
To conceal a directory simply select the folder you wish to protect and click the "Hide" button. To reveal the folder, click the "Unhide" button. It's that simple.
However, the developers recommend you to back up the data you plan on hiding as a safety measure. The program comes with an option for immediately creating a copy of the directories you wish to conceal.
The only thing I don't like about this program is the appearance of its interface. The tool looks like it was created in the 90's. Still, this isn't a big deal since Free Hide Folder does exactly what's being said on the homepage of the developer, without showing any errors or losing any data in the process.
So, I'd say it's definitely worth giving Free Hide Folder a try if you're looking for a simple and quick solution for concealing data on your Windows PC.
