This is a very useful way to hide things from view, but if a nosy user searches for material hidden in this folder (yes a Hole-In-the-Wall is simply a folder) the material will emerge from hiding. These folders are very useful for storing Caches, Strongboxes, and Crates, which you will learn about later.
Open C: and navigate to some little-opened directory. My favorite is C:\WINDOWS\system32, but you could build a Hole anywhere in the Master Drive (or any drive, really). Program Files is another good place; just build the Hole in the files of some random game. Once you have your "Wall" create a new folder (right-click, New, Folder) and name it. If you really want, you can name it "My Hole-In-the-Wall where I store my secret files" but this defeats the purpose. A Hole is supposed to be inconspicuous, so it is best to name it something like "sat" or "pta" (this is why WINDOWS is a good place; it is full of folders with names like "oobe" and "ras"). Now, simply put your files into your new hiding place and leave them there. It is a good idea to change the names of these files if they are really incriminating: use numbers or symbols, or even type the names backward; this way someone poking through your C: won't be tempted to open them if they do stumble upon your Hole-In-the-Wall. Now just memorize the file path and you have a secret folder!
