    As you know the GoodRead has a nice feature that allows you to password protect any folder you want, so you can hide stuff , you don;t wand someone playing with your iPAD, to watch.

    Guess what I tested that feature. You sure need a password when trying to get into the folder.

    But..

    When you activate goodreaderusb on your PC (XP in my case) , You can see the files in the protected folder, and drag them into your PC.

    So Be careful...

    Good tip, thanks. I personally just don't want a curious "cool an iPad" user to stumble across my private or confidential work stuff.

    But you're right, that is kind of a killer problem for really secret stuff. Just curious if you can get access from iTunes too? No, probably not because iTunes still didn't support subdirectories last time I checked.
