Hi Jignesh Thanks for your coding. One more question ?. Is there any possibility to hack the folder and suppose if we forgot the password what shall do for further step. Thanks, Kumaran

Find some other trick for same purpose.

Plase find folllowing trick to hide your precious folder without any help of software..

* Create a folder in D Drive

* Give any name to folder ( suppose Name is abc)

To hide the Folder:

Open Command prompt in your pc

* Click Start> Open RUN> Type cmd> type D:

* type " attrib +h D:\abc" ( without any quotes)
* It's Look like ( D:\>attrib +h D:\abc )

Enter

Now you see that in your D drive "abc" folder is vanish !!! You can not find it even in hiddern folder also.


To revive the folder

* Click Start> Open RUN> Type cmd> type D:
* type " attrib -h D:\abc" ( without any quotes)
* Look like ( D:\>attrib -h D:\abc )



Please note the following space in command .
there is a space after "attrib" and after "+h"

If this trick work than don't forget to drop me a Thanks..
