Version: 2.5

I installed the program, but because in my Windows the function "show hidden files" is activated. the folder does not disappear.

I was looking for a program that does just that (let a folder disappear no matter what).

So the program does not meet my demands.

The first impression - all ок, thank you

Version: 2.3

It does what it claims, but I was looking for a tool to:
1. hide folders without anyone else knowing it, so no shortcut on desktop, but shortkey instead
2. hide folders that couldn't be found via search command

I'm sure I wrote it before but again, I DO NOT like programs that claim to be free and after installing forces you to a complicated and stupid register procedure before you can even begin to try out the program.
Free is free.

It works!

I have tried - it works at least under Windows XP SP1. Guess it does the same on the other newest Windows platforms. It reeeally works. Hides directories. The nice thing is it offers to backup data before hiding. Thanks for developers!

PS: be careful, make backup of your hidden directories as it's not so simple to recover them after the system craches.

Free Hide Folder

I downloaded Free Hide Folder yesterday and used it. It worked very well. I was able to use it without using any help function. It was very intuitive. Thanks

Stable and Worthwhile

Very straightforward, tightly written code, and does what other prograsms charge $25+ for.

What would make it perfect would be have it default hidden at OS startup so you odn;t have to manually hide, along with a timer option for login-unhide so it will go into hidden mode after x minutes.

Free Hide Folder 2.1 is very useful! Simple but useful options.
I even love how you have to know the password to uninstall it.
Very nice! But there's one little flaw...

You can easily find the pictures
(or whatever you hide) by searching it.

It's not that big a deal,
but I hope to see this fixed in the next update.

Other then that, I love this program!

Good, but there are some flaws I discovered

For a start this software is incredibly easy to use, and has a desirable, simplistic interface. The program seems pretty robust, yet I discovered a major flaw in the version.

I came across one day, whilst using this program:

BPM Pro Scan

Several CHKDSK locations, not usually located on the drive. These locations, are the hidden elements on that drive, controlled by Free Hide Folder. What's the problem? Well, anyone can go on the computer, without knowing the password, and type this into the address bar(provided it's the drive with the hidden data):

I'm using C as example for the drive letter

C:CHKDSK.100ÿÿ There you have it, I now can view all the hidden content, without password entry.

The worst thing about it is, is it's predicatable, so you can enter 101, 102 etc, and you WILL find the rest of it.

I've suggested this be fixed to them, but they currently haven't taken action, to my great surprise.

Be warned.

I`m very appreciated

I had been used Folder Guard Professional, it's version may not up to date then every time when I shut down Windows an annoyed message look like "..could not write to memory address 0x....H" will be pop up.

Free Hide Folder is very easily to use, lite size and very kind of you to distribute it as free cost.

Thank you so much.

Pretty dang good

Well, I've been testing this thing out, and it seems to be pretty sweet to me. It does what it says, and it does it good. It's simple to use, and utterly effective.

My one complaint, is that when I installed it, I lost the option to hide folder through windows. To elaborate, I can still hide the folder through the windows explorer, but I can no longer view it through the windows explorer (if you select the option to show hidden folders)

If you never even new windows could that, then this program is definitely for you. If did know, and you are already using windows to hide folders (though you have to do them one at a time and can't put a password on them) then you might want to think before getting this

Vista Compatibility

I use Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1. After installing Free Hide Folder and add a folder for hiding, I cannot open or explore that folder anymore. I there is vista compatibility problem.

I wish I can get help from QArchive blog.

Thank you.

Free Hide Folder

Works perfectly under WinXP. Doesn't seem to work under Vista (Bypasses password protection)

It`s OK.

But only one question, other person can find that data in the Hide Folder?
If they don't know password.

USB Drive

It would be wonderful if it could hide folders on USB or external drives!

Handy Utility

I tried using several other utilities that seem to have to process each file, but Free Hide Folder only deals with the folder. Instead of having to move folders for minor projects or inactive projects to an Archive folder to keep my list from being too cluttered, I can simply hide the folders I don't want to see for now. Great program!
