I'm not talking about using the
System flags, these are too easy to circumvent.
It looks like Wise Folder Hider (WFH) has a working method: hidden folders aren't visible in Windows Explorer even when hidden and system files are visible.
But some programs still see a folder hidden by WFH. For instance SyncBackSE lists these folders and even seems to backup them:
This is a problem because WFH isn't aware of the backup, and there doesn't seem to be a way to make it visible again. (While I can't see the backup, even with WFH, I suspect it's there because of the space it occupies.)
So, is it possible to hide files or folders completely?
edit (after comments)
It would be nice to have the folders hidden, even when I'm logged on, and show them only after I enter the right password, like WFH does it.
