Hi everyone,

I need to know how (and if possible), I can hide files.  And I do not mean setting the hidden attribute.

Could anyone please help and advise me on what to do...  If it is not achievable in vb but another language also, tell me which language.

Thanks,

Joshyy

I dont' think there is a simple method to do this. But a fairly good scenario may be as following:

1) When the user selects a file to hide, your project should copy the contents of this file (copy it as binary code, not ASCII) into a big file (eg: HiddenFiles.dat), and then delete the main file.
2) When the user wants to see the file again, your project should know exactly the location of that file in HiddenFiles.dat, extract it, and place it back in its location.
