Hide your Folders like a Pro

This comes really useful when you have your computer being shared by more than one person.

There are lot of software's available on the Internet which hide your folders but Its of no use because the other persons will definitely come to know about the software, and might even tamper it or worse if he is the administrator he might even uninstall it !

So why to be so insecure when we have the command prompt on our side which can do this for us without even letting other people know that a folder has been hidden

All you have to do is open
command prompt i.e., go to run and then type cmd and press enter.

Now suppose the folder that you want to hide is named as 123 and it is located in the C:/ drive,

So type
C: and press enter

Now type the following code :-

To hide the folder:

attrib +h +s foldername

To un-hide the folder:
attrib -h -s foldername

Easy and effective!

Note: You cant detect this folder even if you do an advanced search of your computer and also it wont show up if you un-hide all your hidden files and folders, so take care not to forget it.
