Hidden Disk is a nice little piece of software that allows you to easily create password 'virtual' protected disks that can be used to store personal or confidential data, and then hide them in plain sight from private eyes. And you can do it for free.
The process takes less than a minute to create an additional disk for all your secret files and folders, and then just another few clicks to hide it. Restoring your disk so you can see your hidden files is as simple as simply entering your password.
We found Hidden Disk to be a simple, yet powerful tool that was ideal for hiding files and folders in Windows away from prying eyes, and as we already said, it's completely free.
Creating hidden folders and storing files you would rather keep secret is a straightforward and simple task that requires no specific technical knowledge.
The trick to Hidden Disk is that it doesn't require any more disk space than you already have on your PC. The new 'Hidden Disk' is virtual and uses free space already available.
Additionally, the password protection is optional and can be fully disabled if you don't want it. In practice, Hidden Disk functions like a regular disk or partition, the only real difference being you can make it appear and disappear at will in just a few seconds. Hidden Disk is also 100% compatible with all your other installed software and programs.
