Essentially an order of non-disclosure seals your records from public access. Generally, law enforcement however will still retain access to view that portion of your criminal history.
It seals the record from public view. A sealed record can only be seen by the government and employers with special clearance. I strongly recommend doing this. The attorney who originally handled your case or any defense attorney in the area can handle this for you.

Texas Government Code Section 411.081 allows an individual who has successfully completed deferred adjudication community supervision to petition the court that placed the individual on probation for an order of nondisclosure. An order of nondisclosure prohibits criminal justice agencies from disclosing to the public criminal history record information related to an offense.
Criminal history record information subject to an order of nondisclosure is excepted from required disclosure under the Public Information Act. Criminal justice agencies are permitted to release criminal history record information subject to an order of nondisclosure to criminal justice agencies, authorized noncriminal justice agencies and the individual who is the subject of the criminal history record information.
