Hide Folder is a secure and user-friendly program that password-protects files, folders and discs. It prevents unauthorized access to important information and programs for every user. Hide Folder protected folders can be completely invisible, inaccessible or accessible in read-only mode. Folder data can be encrypted with one of 9 cryptologic algorithms (BLOWFISH, CAST, COBRA128, PC1, SERPENT, RIJNDAEL(AES), TMS, TRIPLE-DES, TWOFISH). Protected folders and their contents cannot be renamed, modified, deleted, copied, moved, accessed or even seen on the system by other users. Hide Folder 3.1 lets users specify selected programs that will be allowed to access the protected areas (such as virus scanners, disk drive utilities, etc).
One of the most important changes in version 3.1 is the use of impenetrable cryptographic algorithms for data protection. Now your data will stay protected, even if an intruder has stolen the media containing your secure information and attempts an assault using brute-force or other methods on his/her own computer. You can use the powerful encryption functions of Hide Folder 3.1 to transfer your secure information via the net, or even email it, without fear of it being revealed to unauthorized parties.
Hide Folder 3.1 has added even more functionality to the wide variety of neat features inherited from the previous release. It also has a prettier \"XP\" look. From Version 2.7, Hide Folder even protects your desktop. Just like any other folder, you can set access permissions to your desktop. In Hide Folder 3.1, you can prevent unauthorized changes to your desktop settings - hot-keys, wallpapers, screensavers etc. with just one click. In addition, Hide Folder 3.1 protects the user settings of My Documents, Favorites, Internet History and OS settings of Control Panel, date and time, Desktop.
