Hidden Folders WinMend Weakness (Please watch out)
Previously, I would recommend this program given the ability to hide data on removable drives, such as USB Flash. But after I tried, tested and analyzed, there was one weakness that I see.
Indeed files / folders become invisible, but I see the file / folder is hidden folder named Recycled. When we open this folder we will not see its contents. But if it is in the Delete folder or deleted, can be a disaster. Recycled folder of its own is not deleted, but the content will be deleted, so that our data is in hiding will not be accessible (also deleted).
It also includes when we hide data on your hard drive. Actual data seems to be moved / stored in the RECYCLER folder, so when someone delete this folder, the data will be lost. Seeing this, if you still need this kind of software is better to use Hide Folders.
