Hi,

I am not a very computer savvy person. I have a nephew who is good with computers and I think he has played with my system in such a way that I am unable to recover a hidden folder. Once I hide it, when I need it again, I am unable to get it as it does not show when unhide option is used. Can somebody help me, as I do not ask my nephew.
Cheers

hi dear
you need to manually unhide your files follow this PATH=TOOLS-->FOLDER OPTIONS-->VIEW-->Select SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS.



this way you can unhide your any hidden file on your system...

Dar Ji,

If u carefully read my posting, I have clearly mentioned that I have used the unhide option. The file does not appear inspite of using it. Do you have any new solution?
Cheers

Dear Bear,

Thanks for your post. Probably you've given me a solution. Kindly bear with me for a couple of days till I try it out and revert.
As for sarcasm and being rude, I dont need to justify my posting, it is clear and is in order.

Cheers,
