How2 Create a Xtreme Hidden Folder in Windows Without Using any Software

Making a file or folder hidden in Windows is simple : Right click on the file or folder you want to hide, select "Properties" and on the "General" tab, check the box in the "Attributes" section named "Hidden". Click "OK" and you are done.

However, the problem with this trick is that its quite old and almost every windows user knows how to get access to hidden folders/files (In case you don't know, you can view hidden files/folders by first opening "My Computer" then selecting Tools > Folder options > View and checking the "Do not show hidden files and folders" box)

In this tutorial I will show you how to make a Xtreme hidden file or folder that you can't find by simply checking "Show hidden files and folders"

  1. Create a folder in any drive
    For eg: I Have Create a Folder In H Drive. and the name is XRT
  2. Now Go To Command Prompt (Start>RUN>CMD)
  3. Now Type 
    attrib +s +h  h:xrt (H represent The Directory where the folder is present and Xrt represent the name of that folder)
    Enter the path into the command prompt in which the file\folder is present
  4. Now, go back to the place where the file or folder is located and look, it’s not there! You cannot find it through simply browsing around, through the command prompt, or even if you click “Show Hidden Files and Folders”.
  5. To un-hide the folder or file again, open command prompt and navigate to the folder where the hidden folder is located and type 

    attrib -s -h  h:xrt

    Note: To Hide attrib +s +h [drivename]:[foldername]
               To Un-Hide attrib -s -h [drivename]:[foldername]
