Submission + - tool claims to hide files completely on windows

polossatik writes: There is a tool from PCMesh called "Hide Files and Folders" that claims to be *better* than encrypting files (sic). Seen (according to the makers) the files are made undetectable and the tool does not need to run continuous it is supposed to hard to detect and attack. It looks like it's not using alternate streams in NTFS as ADStools cannot find any alternate stream. Of course, the program's own database of hidden files/directory's is a prime target. http://www.pcmesh.com/hide-files-folders.htm
