If you want to protect particular files and folders, then MacHider is exactly what you are looking for. You can hide those files by using the contextual menu in Finder, adding the file from MacHider's menu or dragging and dropping them into MacHider. An unlimited number of files can be protected at once.
Effective protection techniques allow you to hide files and folders from other users without changing them. You won’t lose any files during the hiding process. In case you need to reinstall MacHider, you can use the ‘Restore Files’ feature.
Your private files and folders can be organized into groups, so you may easily and quickly locate them whenever you need. Simply organize them by category to keep your private files structured. Every folder has a personalized icon to help you distinguish your categories. MacHider uses Leopard's quick view technology, which allows you to preview the files you hid without opening them.
