So a few weeks ago I tried to use this
program to hide some files on my computer that were of sentimental value, and that I didn't want to be accessible to the other computer-clueless people that might use my computer. Not heeding the reviews on download.com, I gave it at try, and rather than hiding my files, it did something weird. It replaced the folder with another one, that when clicked leads to a folder that is basically my control panel, or a copy of it, in a different folder. I used easyrecovery professional to try to find my files, if they were deleted, and I recovered the files, which showed up in that folder, to a flash drive. When I went to the flash drive to view my long-lost files, it appears that they were still somehow hidden in that folder, and all I saw was that strange copy of the control panel links (they actually work, i.e. clicking internet options actually takes me to my internet options). Is there any way I could somehow access these files? The software used to hide them seems like it would be pretty basic, but I don't know much about software. I know they're there, I just can't make my computer show them, and it's really bugging me. Thanks.
