New version! - MySecretFolder™ is a software utility that you can use to hide your private folder from other users, hide it so that no one will even suspect that your secret folder exists! Yet the folder would be easily accessible to you, when you need it: just press the "hot key", enter your password, and it will open in a window, just like a regular Windows folder.
While the folder is unprotected, you can work with the files and documents it contains, just like with any other folder you have. When you are done, enter your password, and the folder will disappear again, until you need it next time.
Hide your secret folder
You can make your private folder on the hard drive invisible to other users. The folder would be hidden from virtually all programs, including Windows Explorer, Office, MS-DOS programs, etc. You can make the folder visible by unprotecting it with your password; other users would be unable to do that without knowing the correct password.
Lock your personal folder with a password
Instead of hiding a folder, you could tell MySecretFolder software to protect your private folder with a password. That is, the folder would be visible to you and other users, but when someone attempts to open it, a password prompt would be displayed. Without the correct password, the folder would remain inaccessible.
Protection without encryption
MySecretFolder protects your private files without encrypting them. It means that there is no danger of losing your documents if you lose your encryption key: with MySecretFolder all your files are kept intact, without modification of any kind.
Quickly open the protected folder via a "hot key"
You can choose a specific keyboard combination as the hot key of MySecretFolder, for quick access to the protected folder and to MySecretFolder configuration utility. Of course, the "hot key" is protected with your password, too, only you can use it!
Optional "stealth mode" of operation
You can set up MySecretFolder to operate in the stealth mode, to hide its own files and shortcuts from being seen by other users. You would still be able to control MySecretFolder via the "hot key".
Easy recovery in case of emergency
If you forget your password, or experience other problems, simply use the Emergency Recovery Utility (available for free download from our web site) to quickly restore access to your protected folder.
