How to secure/hide folders on personal computer?

Post by kool~nomi on Tue Jan 06, 2009 2:27 pm



Today tip is very helpful to hide and secure your personal data from other users, particularly on home computer. Just imagine if multiple users are using the same computer at home or in office environment then there is no any 100% secure method to protect your personal files. You may be used any third party tools to protect your folders but it is not recommended by Microsoft to use such kinds of tools. Using built-in windows (XP, 2003, Vista) Attrib commands option, you can change the attributes of a folder (Read only, Hidden and System attributes) and safe your data.

Follow the given steps to edit the folders attributes to secure your data:

To enable this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.

Now create a folder that you want to hide on any computer drive. (For example, you have created a folder on D drive with the name Data)

First click on Start button and type CMD in Run box then press Ok button to display the windows command prompt.

Now type the command "attrib +s +h D:\Data" without quotation marks and press Enter button to execute it.

This command will hide your "Data" folder from D drive and now you can verify it.

Any one cannot unhide this folder using windows "Show hidden files and folders" option also.

When you want to unhide this folder, again open command prompt and type the command "attrib -s -h D:\Data" and press Enter button. If you want to hide files then simply move all these files to this "Data" folder.
