    You can use folder guard or advance hide folder. Both are free. There is another nice software called
    fake folder. You can try any of them.

    Re: file hiding softwares (dont use softwarez)

    Just go through the steps below..then u can make a hidden folder to keep all your data SAFE!

    1. First create a new folder somewhere on your hard drive
    when you name it hold down "Alt" and press "0160" this will create and invisible space so it will apper as if it has no name.

    2. Then right click in and select "Properties" select the tab "coustimize" and select "change icon" scroll along and you should a few blanc spaces click on any one and click OK


    when you hav saved the settings the folder will be invisible to hide all your personal files. You just have to remember the folders location in your hard drive..

    Cheers!!

    Use Folder Lock. It's the best. It's a shareware.
    I think after using it you will also agree.

    This is a very good method but tedious.However, I'd support folder lock. A excellent piece .

    The method of hiding folder using alt key is good but tedious as to see those
    files , you have to follow the reverse process. Special softwares enable you not only hide it but make it password protected.It also protect that folder from accidental deletion.You can hide all files of a particular extension or can hide even an entire partition.All these with a few click of mouse.So I will suggest a separate software to handle that.

    Re: file hiding softwares (dont use softwarez)

    wat do u mean by tedious
    itz the easiest way
    fully invisible
    and if u use floderlock
    den otherz can see the folder u locked and they will ask u watz in dat folder.

    or elze the best way is to change one of da partition (which has porn content) to Hidden FAT 32 by ranish partition manager.

    Problem with ur trick chota ro waala
    Wat we have to do is arrange icons by name and our hidden folder will be shown first as it has no name.

    Also magic folders is shareware

    Also there is no need to follow the reverse method. Just type f:\alt+0160 if ur hidden folder is in f:\ and u can view them or u can try clicking on the folder as there are 3 possibilities.
    1. If u arranged the folders by name it shud be first. click it
    2. if it is in middle, u can recognize it due to the gap in between two visible folders
    3. else it is last
