    Does anyone know a way, or a program for hiding or p/w protect a file in the Hero?

    You can hide files really easily :thinking: I use the ES File Explorer and if you start a filename with a full stop (example: .hidden) and then folder name 'hidden' wouldn't be seen by the file explorer or by the Android software.

    Pretty sure there are tons of file locker type apps out there. One that springs to mind pretends to be a flashlight app but is also somewhere to securely hide your por... um... your personal data.

    HideNSeek v2.23 Application for Android | Tools

    Not that i've ever tried it, obviously.

    I find that HideNSeek takes forever especially if there are over 100 files in the folder and it's a pain to hide everything, then show everything when you want to open the file, then re-hide everything again afterwards. I'm currently using another one called "File Copy" which copies any of your selected image/video folders to another location with a different extension (similar to HideNSeek). The difference is File Copy lets you view all your files from within itself instead of having to do a "Show Files" operation first. File Copy has a few design issues that I'd still like to change, but I find it is quicker and easier than HideNSeek.

    RR File Locker just came out and works great.
