PostSubject: Create hidden folders (Vista) - Works for windows xp too.   Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:54 am

You may have created normal hidden folders in windows Xp and vista to store your private files , but these normal type of hidden folders in vista and windows Xp is quite old technique. As even if you create a hidden folder using this old technique almost every one or a normal windows user would know how to get access to that folder.

By simply going to Windows Explorer>>File Menu>>tools>>Folder Options>>view tab and check the radio option which says – "Show Hidden Files and Folders".

But what if you can create a ultra hidden system folder which is not shown even if the above setting of "Show Hidden Files and Folders" is turned on or clicked.


1. Open My Computer and go to File Menu>>Tools>>Folder Options>>View Tab(Press alt button to show file menu bar in windows vista).

2. Scroll down and check the option which says – "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck the option which says – "Hide Protected Operating System Files(Recommended)" and click ok.

3. Now Open any drive from my computer you will find a folder named RECYCLER( this is a hidden as well as system folder).

4. Copy this folder any where and rename it according to your choice and paste your private files into this folder.

5. Repeat the step 1 and check the option which says – "Hide Protected Operating System Files(Recommended)" and click ok.

6. That's it! Done.

Now go to the location where you pasted and renamed that folder called RECYCLER ,you will notice that folder is invisible even if the setting called "Show Hidden Files and Folders" is checked, so you have finally created a ultra hidden folder in windows.
