Wise Apps

Would it be possible to add more Wise apps to the portable apps directory/store. After looking through a list of their current apps it appears a number of them are already portable such as:

* Wise Auto Shutdown 1.41
* Wise JetSearch 1.48
* Wise Folder Hider 2.02
* Wise Care 365 3.18

Which can all be found here (http://www.wisecleaner.com/download.html) What would it take to have an official portable apps release of these apps?

Some

We don't do shutdown apps as they will be blocked by most antivirus as potentially unwanted programs. That's why DShutdown was removed. It kept alerting and being removed from users drives as they moved between PCs. Bad user experience.

JetSearch is an option we could do.

Folder Hider uses a simple Windows Explorer trick to hide files, so it's not actually secure at all. I've been debating the merit of these utilities in a portable setting.

365 does not seem to have a portable version despite saying it does. And it's basically a combo of the utilities that already have proper portable versions.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Has folder hider improved?

Hi sorry to resurrect an old thread but has Wise Folder Hider improved or does it rely on the same explorer trick?

Thanks

Hiding Works That Way

All hiders use tricks to hide things from Windows Explorer. That's what they do.

The other option is encryption which would require admin rights to either mount a drive letter or junction a folder.
