There are many possibilities. First, what type data are you trying to hide? Alpha-numeric is easier to hide than others, say Mpegs. There are loads of encryption utilities available for free that will do what you want... just seargh Google for *free encryption utilities*. XP home/Pro has the ability to low-level encrypt/password protect folders via the *Send to compressed Folder* right-click option. Once compressed, look in the *File* pull-down tab, and you will see an option to password protect the contents.... *Note* this does not hide the folder/folder name. Also, Start > Control Panel > (classic view) Folder Options > View Tab > Hidden Files/Folders > View/Do not view button. Then under Right click file *Properties* check/un-check *Hidden* Hope this helps...
