Hide Files and Folders is a great easy-to-use password-protected security utility working at Windows kernel level you can use to password-protect certain files and folders, or to hide them securely from viewing and searching just with a click of mouse.
Upon accessing any protected file or folder, dialog box querying password appears on the screen. If valid password entered, user gets access to the file or folder, otherwise not.
Hide Files and Folders does not modify your media: in protecting your files or folders, it just uses a high-reliability VXD driver working at Windows kernel level. This guarantees that Hide Files and Folders will never lose your data, as may happen if you use other file- and folder-protecting software.
Due to unique technology, the program also lets you protect system files and folders such as the Windows System, Registry and Swap files.
