You ca specify the permission so that only a certain user can actually have Viewable rights to the folder.
If you set the List folder/read data option to no, then they can't see anything in that.

got to the folder. alternate click and select properties. Then go to the security tab. Once there, if you are an admin, you can set specific permissions to the other users on that machine. Another option is if you have Encrption available on your computer, is to encrypt the folder while you are logged in. Other users will not be able to view anything that you have encrypted.
All of this only works if the others involved are not local admins to the machine. If they are, then youare SOL for the time. Cause i don't know the app you are referencing...

Inaris, sound like you are using NTFS, aren't you? I'm using FAT32
and I can't find any thing as you said.

So, Sys, if you're using FAT32 too, I think there is a program that's very easy to use: "Easy file & folder protector". You can find it by Google and download the trial.

> another option would be to just encrypt the entire directory instead of trying to "hide" files.
