mastors....

me having probs.. i just hid a folder then after that when i come to show it from folder options it wont show up... i tried to restart then select "show hidden files and folders" but doesnt work...

i tried to make new folder then hid it, still wont show up, i cant see a blurry folder... then i make aa new folder -it shows a filename "new folder(2)" so it recognizes the existnce of the old folder...

1) What OS?
2) Do they show up from a command prompt? (type "dir /a:h" to show hidden files from the command prompt - no quotes)

Have you tried unchecking "Hide Protected System Files.."?

I'm wondering if it was labelled as a system folder.
