GoodbyeHello is an app for making files and folders invisible or visible.

Visit the website for more information and a demo.

When you drop a file or folder on the app's main window, or Finder or Dock icon, it will be made invisible. You can also use the File menu commands "Make Files Invisible..." or "Make Folder Invisible..." to make files or folders invisible.

You can also use the File menu command "Make Path Visible..." to make a file or folder visible. This command requires you to enter the pathname of the file or folder. Note that pathnames of processed files and folders are logged to the console. You can open the console by selecting "Open Console..." from the File menu. The log is useful for copying file and folder pathnames into the "Make Path Visible" window's text field.

You can also navigate to the files you want to make visible using the "Make Files Visible" File menu command, and navigate to the folder you want to make visible using the "Make Folder Visible" File menu command. Both navigation dialogs will display invisible files.

Don’t waste your money!


After adding files to app and clicking “make files invisible” the files still appear in “Finder” clear as ever. What a stupid app and complete waste of money!!!!!

This app usually works fine.

I downloaded this app and used it almost immediately, and it worked quite well for the first three or four uses, then stopped working. I don't know what I did – at first I thought that it was because the folders were read-only, but then it wouldn't work on folders with read-and-write permissions either. Then it started working again. That's only one little bug to be worked out, and other than that, it works quite well, and has assisted me in developing a security system for my computer.

Pretty much what I was looking for


I wanted to clean up my desktop of some drive icons that i don't normally want to see (Time Machine, backup drive, etc) and this fit the bill. The only real complaint I have is it would have been nice if there was a contextual menu so I could right click on a file and hide it that way and I needed to manually restart Finder to get everything cleared up, but other than that, it worked like a charm.
