There's not really a way to hide a file. That's just clever marketing bullsh*t. Anyone who actualy knows what he's doing can uncover so-called "locked" or "hidden" files in about five minutes. What you're buying when you buy this sort of software is a false sense of security, and little else. Why do I say this? Becasue I know that forensic tools exist that can read any file off any hard drive, no matter how it was hidden. Don't go thinking that you've actualy hidden anything this way: It's all still actualy on the disk, and I can see it if I'm looking for it.Blitze105 said:Well the thing is, there are passwords on my computer... but i am a perfectionist kind of person. I don't want the person to go to start -> search and find all the files i was trying to hide. The only program i really liked is called file lock but it costs money.. and im just not the kind of person to pay for a bunch of 1s and 0s.
What makes them any different than hackers if they are snooping through your personal belongings? You have the wrong impression of a hacker if you think they are all out to destroy things. Most people who break into systems are merely just curious snoops like the same people you referred to.Blitze105 said:i am not trying to hide from hackers and what not. I want it to be hidden from the nosier ppl in my house.
I asked for a different piece of advice than what i am getting, which is fine every one is trying to help i am not trying to be rude. Why does every one take what i say so badly??? I am trying not to be rude...Resolution said:If you don't want to follow people's advice here, then just say so and mark the thread as "resolved".
