[QUOTE=groovemeister;2076547]No, it’s documents that are accessed frequently and want to be able to use easily, not keep a USB drive hidden - but don’t want the kids viewing.
I’s OK, hidden file will do fine. :)[/QUOTE]
Kids know everything about Hidden folders. When you press ctrl+A to select all files, windows gives warning that the folder contains hidden files or folders.
Use WinRAR instead. while archiving, in advanced options, choose ‘set password’, You can also hide file names there.
Also If you don’t want the files to be compressed, In general options, use the ‘compression method’ as ‘store’, so that extraction/running will be very fast like it used to be in the explorer.
