Hiding Files On Your Hard Drive

Recommended Posts

I need to keep some files on my computer hidden, really hidden. I once had a demo of this program which would partition a section of your harddrive and make it invisible unless you used that program to read the partition (you also needed a password). Does anybody know of a program that does something similar to this?

Or any other way of scrambling these files so that no-one could possibly find them, or read them (a program that scrambles files internaly would also be useful)

Well if your trying to hide pr0n, and multiple people use your computer, just apply the hidden attribute to them and encrypt them so other users can't open them. Not that I have ever done this.... just heard of people doing this. :) Or better you, put the hidden files on a thumb drive. Some thumbdrives (I can't remember which brand right now) Requires a password to open, so its basically like your hidden partition idea except the partition stays in your pocket.

I have my own apartment so I don't really hide it...just throw it on an external hard drive that stays off. But what I used to do when I lived at home all the time was rename it to something random. Like adknumber4.mpg or w/e...then make it hidden and put it my steam folder. Then I made it hidden. If someone unhid the files it still had a random name so it just looked like it belonged there...like a demo.

you always rename your porn so it doesn't indicate such a thing, make it hidden, and place it in your windows folder.  Nobody would think twice of it.

you can also clear your browser history and cache too. :lol:

jeez, why hide pr0n?! lol. im old enough for it and dont bother hiding it at all. it gets it's own partition here on my computer. i couldnt care less who snoops - not that they get a chance to. it is MINE after all and everyone else just uses their own.

 

otherwise, the rename is a good idea. you can also change the file extension manually and then change it back ;)
