I have come up with yet another Hot pick for your MAC OS X machines. Ghost for MAC OS X can traverse through your security settings with the concept of hiding folders and files. For OS X this utility can help you to view or even create hidden folders and files specifically for Leopard flavor. You can make use of this tool so easily that it serves all your needs of having your private files hidden.
Ghost 1.1 is a freeware utility which will help you to hide anything. The interface is so simple that even a naïve user can handle it easily. As an added feature it has a drag and drop based interface so all you need to do is simple drag and drop the files and folder which you want to hide.
Once you are done with it ,a ruled list that has the path of the dropped item is visible to you for reference. If you want to hide then check on the visible option on the same line or else uncheck to unhide. There is an option provided to restart the finder and even you can view all the hidden files at a time with a view option included for it too. This tiny tool is easy to download as it very small sized utility. I found this application to be so fast to install and use. On the other hand it can even enable you to view the hidden files on a click so be least bothered about managing your personal or private information.
