Is there a way to hide files from from a harddrive? I'm not talking about encryption or other obscuring device. Just make files invisible to the eye, when you open a folder for example.
Thanks in advance.
To make your file invisible open that file , click on the tools button placed on the top of ur file , then click on the view option , then click on the folder option. there u will find an option to hide ur folder. mark on the radio button . ...nw that file is hidden . nd to make it visible again follow the same process and mark the another radio button ....
Well for Windows machines or others that use NTFS you can always try alternate data streams, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/105763. That's an old trick. There are other ways . . .
Thanks for your reply.
Is there a more "robust" approach? In the case of a usb key, if someone plugs the key in a computer with different settings than mine, the hidden files may very well be visible.
