WinMend Folder Hidden – Hide Folders from Other Windows Users

Friday, February 11th, 2011

This seems like a useful application for the security conscious …

It sometimes may be important to hide folders on a multi-user system to avoid access to the files stored within. It makes sense for instance for important documents to prevent that other users (kids anyone?) tamper with the data or access it. Hidden folders are not really a protection on the other hand, as it is easily possible to display and access those folders if the right setting changes are made on the system.
