"Hide files inside files"
OmniHide is a unique application that lets you hide any type of file within another file so that it can't be found by anyone but you on your operating system. This powerful utility lets you conceal documents within music files, images, videos, and even other documents, without taking away from the functionality or content of the original file.
The install package downloads in a zip file that includes two setup files (choose the OmniHide Trial Setup). Upon running the installation you'll be asked whether you want to include Explorer context menu integration, and two “Next” clicks later the automated setup process will begin.
The user interface is well organized into five main tabs – OmniHide, Recover, Settings, Go Pro, and About. The main OmniHide tab contains three input fields – Mask File, File to Hide, and Output File. You start by choosing the mask file that you want to hide a file within, and then select the file you would like to hide, and choose a name/location for the hidden file in the output file field. Below the 'File to Hide' input field there is a small 'Options' drop-down box that lets you choose between Secure or Portable hiding modes.
Keep intruders and nosy eyes from viewing your documents, videos, images, or other files by hiding them in inconspicuous places
Portable mode lets you hide a compressed archive (a zip or RAR file) within any file type, and then open it using OmniHide or an extractor like WinZip or WinRar.
Secure mode lets you encode the hidden file with password protection (in full Pro version), ensuring that it cannot be opened by any program other than OmniHide or the OmniHide Standalone Extractor
Fully functional Pro version is available for only $7 and offers continual access to free patches/updates
Integrates seamlessly with Windows context menus, so you can right-click any file and select from a list of OmniHide functions
Pro version has no file size restrictions, so you can hide files of any size
Hidden files can be opened on third-party machines using the standalone extractor that is available for free download
It should be noted that this is a trial version with limited functionality, so you can only hide files in image formats, the output is watermarked, the mask file has to be between the resolution of 300 x 300 and 1440x1440, and it is not possible to password protected files.
OmniHide is unique because it lets you hide files within other files, however there are other applications that let you encrypt, password protects, and lock files/folders. Some of the most popular file protection software include Invisible Secrets, Folder Lock, AxCrypt, and WinMend Folder Hidden.
If you're looking for an extremely effective way to hide your files, OmniHide Pro trial is certainly worth consideration. By hiding files within other files this software makes it very difficult for someone to find sensitive data on your computer because they won't know what to look for, and even if they're able to find the hidden file, they won't be able to surpass the password-protected encryption.
