"Hidden" File Application of "Filemod" Software plus
other File Security Options
"Filemod" Software from rpsoft2000 software has several file
"security" options among its many features including hidden
file handling. The most important
- "Hidden" Files - "Filemod can modify file attributes in
bulk, modifying an entire directory. One of these uses can be
to change file attributes of a whole directory or nested directory
to the windows definition of "hidden" files. We do want to say
quickly that a number of users are knowledgeable about windows usage
of windows hidden files, and that much by itself may not be enough
for all intruders, but it can be a start. Filemod can change a
directory or nested directory of files quickly to either "hidden"
file types or convert them to "non-hidden" file attributes.
Filemod operates on the files themselves but not the directories
(folders) that the files are in. For more on this application,
more examples below:

- "File Shredding" - After you have deleted sensitive files
from your computer, how do you know that they cannot be recovered?
The answer is that in many cases they can be. The files often
remain on your computer until another program or more data covers
them up in their memory location at a later date. "Filemod"
also has the option of filling unused computer space over night - or
when you have time - with meaningless files filled with script
"0's". Since these files write over your unused memory, the
files that were there are now written over and no longer exist.

- "File Name Scramble" - A person breaking into your
computer looking for important files to steal may have a hard time
understanding which sensitive files to take if those file names are
scrambled. Filemod does allow file name scrambling for a
directory of files based on a "seed" password name of your choice.
The file name scrambler and de-scrambler also work on file
extensions - changing critical file extension names such as ".xls"
(Excel Spreadsheets), and ".ppt" (Power Point Presentation)
extensions to another type temporarily, making it hard for an
intruder to find important files even by their type. The file
name scrambler and descrambler also operate on many picture
extensions as ".jpg" and ".bmp" to also modify those extensions when
hidden - as well as ".pdf" files and more. For more on this
