and no other user reviews.

I would stay away. For English speaking people this foreign language home web site and utility would probably not be a good idea.

Also, I have to question the idea of a password protected hidden partition. What if;

1] You forget the password? Or

2] The OS fails. How do you then access your data on this hidden partition?

MSF 1.1 software

Dear Mark,
My request was addressed to know if anyone had installed this program to know how it worked.
I have not installed the software for the reasons you do this myself

The lesson about such things is all about backup.

Many encrypt and hide such things without a backup copy. What happens is that the content is lost.

Why do that?
