I am looking for a solution to hide file contained in a folder, block access and hide even file names.

I've been able to achieve the first and second result using Axcrypt but my file names still can be seen...

Any hints?

What's the difference between hiding a file and hiding a file name? – Lèse majesté Mar 16 '12 at 10:37
Sorry if I was unclear: I need that instead of the file name "textfile.txt" it reads "" or something like that – Pitto Mar 16 '12 at 10:55

Blocking read access to the folder itself will hide all the filenames in that folder - this is the simplest way to do it under Windows or Unix.

Use access controls to only allow access to specified users/accounts.

The problem is that is a shared computer and both people use the same username/password so the problem should be solved using an utility like axcrypt – Pitto Mar 19 '12 at 11:47
how can you distinguish between users if they use the same username? – Rory Alsop Mar 19 '12 at 13:04
