What's New in Version 1.1.1
Fixed the password protection option
Okay, but missing a couple of key features
The app generally does what it claims -- it hides files in the Finder. However, two things to note: 1.) Although the feature list claims it does, it does not in fact (as of version 1.1.1) allow you to launch hidden files; you must make the files visible in order to launch them. 2.) It doesn't hide files from the command line at all; anyone savvy enough to open the Terminal and type 'ls' can still see the files and/or folders you've hidden.
i debated between this app and another one which costs 3X the price of this one and I am glad I chose this one! It works just as it is described, and i was also able to hide folders on my shared hard drive via our air port express' USB port, I can't even explain how awesome that is. i have checked with my other macs and the files cannot be seen. I am running Lion 10.7.5 on a 15" i7 MBP
It allows you to hide the whole file and you can set a password
