Adding items to your vault—and, thus, hiding them—is a simple as drag and drop: Just find the files or folders you want to protect, drag them into the window, and Hider 2 immediately encrypts and hides those items from public view. Next to each item in your vault is a toggle to make that item visible again. If you have multiple drives, you can choose which one Hider 2 uses for its encrypted storage.
This means that savvy malcontents could theoretically recover that data off your hard drive. MacPaw told Macworld that the company will be adding secure deletion in a future version.
Hiding or unhiding a large file can take a bit of time. Hider 2 took almost 15 minutes to hide this 7GB folder. In addition, every time you hide or unhide a file or folder, that item must be copied and encrypted or decrypted, respectively, which can take time.
With small files, the processing time is almost instantaneous, but larger folders such as a 7GB folder I tested take significantly longer.

The vault is initially empty where you just have to do a simple thing to import things - Drag and Drop the files. It is present at the lower left corner of the vault pane. Along the left, there is a 2-column view with the source list and on the right is the pane that lists all the files. Just dragging the files encrypts them and hides them from the public view. You can toggle whether you want to keep it on public or visible view.
In case of multiple files also, you can choose which you want to keep visible and which one to hide from the public. For doing the quick access, there is an icon present at the top of the screen.
The kids were sick and malnourished. The border they'd crossed from Turkey into Syria was minutes away, but the passage back was no longer safe.
