    I've used hide it pro for years & never had an issue like this and I can't get a response to my emails sent to the app creator.

    While trying to transfer files to another device, I was placing several of the albums (as the app informs) onto the SD card... what I didn't realize was the card wasn't in the device so it went into the internal memory. I can see the files names but when you click on them it leads down a dead-end road due to the fact they are "HID".

    I've uninstalled & re-installed...
    I need to know how to find the items & place them back into vault.
    I'm not talking about porn or such, I'm talking major family events... the birth of my children, ect. Please lead me in some sort of direction to resolve this issue!!
    Both devices are s3's.

    Total Commander or ES File Explorer. The usual way to "hide" pictures is to put a .nomedia file in the folder. If you tell a file manager to show hidden files, you'll see those files and can move them somewhere else, or just delete the "dot" at the beginning of .nomedia.

    Or connect the phone to your computer - it should see the files.

    Thank you, I was able to find all my files with your help. My hide it pro app won't allow me to change the vault location back to its old location so that I can view the files through the app. Do i or can I just change the .fr to .jpg or is there an easier solution to my problem?

    I have the same problem with hide it pro. Where did you find the files? I have been looking everywhere in the folders but have no idea how the files are hidden or encrypted.

    Download ES File Explorer. Then read the following.

    thanks for the reply. I installed the es file explorer app and set to show hidden files. I still can't see the location of my hide it pro files. The developers website blog says all hide it pro files are under a folder named programdata but I can't see anything under here either. Please elaborate more on where you found your files.

    Go into your Hide It Pro app and check your vault location. That should give you some direction to where the programdata file is which is where your hidden files will be.. UNLESS you've changed your vault location. It's in your phone so you should be able to search for the file.

    If you are having trouble searching for it on your phone, then try connecting it to your computer to conduct a search

    In the app have you tried going to settings and then clicking on advanced settings and selecting find missing files?

    If you got your version from Amazon, its outdated. Download the latest from the play store. It will automatically transfer hidden items to the new app.

    Well if the HideItPro isn't seeing any photos after clicking find missing files on the newer version of the app then your photos were probably deleted. Did you use any cleaning apps recently?

    There seems to be little info or help with this app out there. I am dissappointed after paying for this app. It functioned fine for a year or so but after installing Marshmallow it no longer functions. It was fine after transitting to the Lollipop OS. But directly after upgrading to Marshmallow, my photos are gone and it also gives an error when tying to add New Folders.

    Marshmallow just changed the file structure. Just use a file explorer like ES to locate them. All that hide app does is put a dot in front of the file folder making it a "hidden" folder. ES has an option to see hidden folders.

    If you enable "show hidden folders" in es file explorer, look in the dcim folder. Look for folders created by that app as well. Look in Android/data/ name of app to see if it moved them to its own data folder as well.
