Wise Folder Hider is a free and tiny application that securely hides your most valuable information and data from sight. Its powerful hiding algorithms will render your files, folders, and even entire USB Flash drives and make those invisible to prying eyes. This tiny yet powerful tool requires very few CPU resources and no special skills whatsoever.

All you have to do is set a strong password, which will become the only key to open the program and “recover” your hidden information. It is important that this password is both sufficiently strong and unknown to anyone else. To make things even harder for unwanted visitors, Wise Folder Holder uses a “double tie knot” to further protect your sensitive data. Together with the log-in password mentioned, you can add a second password to each file or folder you wish to hide.

The program’s interface is extremely simple and, on most occasions, it becomes completely unnecessary as the program allows you to drag and drop to Wise Folder Hider’s icon whichever items you need to hide. Alternatively, you can also make use of Window’s context menu and right-click on the desired file, folder or Flash drive to launch the program.

Either way, this free application will securely keep your secrets using the most advanced encryption algorithms, which have been greatly enhanced in this new version of the program. The same goes for the improved anti-stealth filter, which makes it more difficult to uninvited guests to take a look at your confidential documents. Just one caveat though – do not forget your passwords.

Guest For all whose wondering, you don't actually have to un-hide and re-hide an item to get it hidden again like this article states. Just exit the program and all files will be automatically set to hide again, you're not meant to have to manually re-hide all your files.
