Hide Your Microsoft Access Back-End Folder

One of the biggest security problems that developers of shared, split Microsoft Access databases face is that in order to give people access to work with the database, those people have to have full read/write access to the back-end folder. This is a security nightmare. A disgruntled employee could just delete the back-end file completely. Sure, you can restore from last night's backup, but how much data might you lose in the mean time? Or they could download the entire back-end file and steal your valuable data.

For the longest time, the only sure-fire recommendation I could give my students was to upgrade to SQL Server if you need that kind of security for your back-end file. Well now I've come across a new solution that you can use to completely hide the back-end folder from Windows. Access can still use the files in that folder, but nobody can browse and see it.
