    As my second computer will be used by some other people in the future, i am looking for an application which hides folders and files even in 'secure mode'. I tried 'Hide Folders XP'. Anyone has experience with this kind of software and can do a recomandation? Any Freeware out there which does this job? I don't think that i want encrypted folders, containers, partition, etc.

    is there something wrong with just setting NTFS permissions
    on who can and cant read, write ect the folders\contents?

    Youd simply create accounts for them and set their permissions

    Btw, Free Hide Folder is garbage. Hide Folders XP is cool but I´m not sure how it works in a multi user setup, I guess you should test this. ;)

    Is it just me, or does Free Hide Folder breaks the "show/hide hidden file/folders" setting? :doubt:
