A small application that unhides hidden folders.

editor's review





Sometimes, viruses can affect many aspects of the computer, including the visibility status of the folders, even after they are removed. Portable Unhide is a small program that was designed to unhide folders and documents in USB connected devices.

The program has a very compact interface, which makes it easy to figure out by all users.

As mentioned, the app has the ability to make hidden folders and document visible again, despite the virus activity. Sometimes, even after they malware is removed, the items can remain hidden and it’s next to impossible to make them visible again, without a specialized app. The app even works with folders that were set to “Hidden” from the “Properties” area.

However, Portable Unhide is a small tool that managed to obtain great results on such occasions. In order to have it perform the scan, you must provide the letter of the USB drive. In order to see what letter was assigned to the drive, you can access My Computer.

Once this detail is filled in, you must simply press the “Unhide” button on the interface. The process doesn’t take long, but it depends on the number of files and folders that are on the device, as well as its size.

Since the program is completely portable, it doesn’t need to be installed to the computer in order to work and can be launched even from removable devices.

The bottom line is that Portable Unhide is a nice tool that is sure to come in handy for a lot of people. Inexperienced users shouldn’t have any issues while working with this app, thanks to its overall simplicity.
