Since they will not be stored on the computer’s hard disk, you can remove the flash drive from the computer at any time and no one except you will be able to access them. They are inexpensive and you can carry them with you wherever you want.

Put files online: You can also store your files online by uploading them to the internet. A couple good place store your files are Good Docs, SkyDrive, or Dropbox. This will allow you to make sure they are not stored on your computer but instead they are stored online where you need a username and password to access them.

Make Folders Invisible: If you want to store your files on the computer; there are still ways to make the files hidden. One way to do this is to download a application that can make the folder invisible. This will make the folders you hid only accessible with the application you used to hide it. Another way to make a folder invisible is to right click it and check the hidden box.

Camouflage: Another great and easy way to hide your folders is to download a program called Disguise Folders. This changes the picture of the folder to a common windows utility and if they open that then it will open the utility. The only way to get the actual contents of the folder is to use the program.

Steganography: Steganography is encrypting your files into another file. So you could even hide an entire into a file. You copy the file into another file then you compress it. A program to do this is called Our Secret. You just select the files you want to hide then you encrypt it into the other file. You can access your files that are encrypted with WinRAR or WinZip.

Encryption: The best way to hide your files or folders is with encryption. You need to download a encryption tool like TrueCrypt or SafeHouse Explorer. These will create a hidden storage area on your computer to hide your private files or folders. These will then encrypt the files or folders inside the area so they are not accessible or viewable unless by the tool. When you want to access your files you have to use the program then enter a password. If you forget the password then you will never be able to recover your files.
