Hello all, here's my third program. SevenSuperHiddenCreator does hide any folder you want, and the only way to make show is to run show.bat or uncheck the "Hide Protected Operating System Files" box in folder and search options. I suggest renaming the Show.bat or it will be rewrite next time you hide a folder. REMEMBER TO RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
Download: SevenSuperHiddenCreator via Mediafire

Reply, thank you!

Nice job! I took some screenshots of the whole process (for those who are interested in seeing what it does.)

Open the program and browse for a folder to hide:

Image

Make shortcuts to show the folder when you need it back (this shortcut can be stored somewhere secret.)

Image

Click Hide now! to hide the folder.

Image

The folder is now hidden (press the F5 key if you still see it); click Show.bat to show the folder again.

Image

Your folder will now be visible.

Image

What if I delete the Shortcut?

Go to Computer, press the Alt key and click Tools > Folder options...

Image

Uncheck Hide protected operating system files.

Image

When prompted, click Yes.

Image

Now you can see your hidden files.

nice utility.. but i prefer to use command prompt for this.

to make a folder superhidden (hidden system folder), open command prompt and change directory to one in which folder to be hidden is present.

to make a folder superhidden in command prompt type : "attrib +s +h <folder name>"
to do opposite of above, type in command promt : "attrib -s -h <folder name>"

Example:
to make the folder extras on my desktop superhidden,

i open command prompt and change directory to my desktop.
and then type "attrib +s +h extras"

Image

to remove the attributes then in command prompt i type: "attrib -s -h extras"

Image

note: In command prompt there is an autocomplete feature (i dont know its exact name). when you need to type the name of a file or folder, you just enter starting few letters of the folder name and then press "tab" key.
if there are multiple files starting with the letters typed, keep pressing "tab" key until required file name is obtained
This feature is very useful when files name is long or there are spaces

Example: if i want to change directory to program files, i type "cd pr" and then hit "tab" key and
"cd pr" changes to "cd "Program Files""


attrib command is also useful when some viruses make the files as hidden system files and the hidden option cannot be unchecked in properties dialogue.(if the show hidden system files is not checked, then the files will not be even shown). to remove the system attribute from file or folder "attrib -s -r -h <file/foldername> is usefull.
