How to hide a folder using cmd in windows



Friends all of us want to hide some files, movies and the stuff from others. Many of us make the attributes of the file as hidden and make it invisible through the folder options. But every computer user knows it. I know on using other’s computer almost all of us enable showing hidden files to see what secret content he has, Don’t you? But there exists a trick with which you can hide your content from others.
Dear reader we have some useful information in this post. Well, If you are a command line lover, then I do not need to tell you about this. If you are not, you are welcome here. There is a command called attrib in the Command Prompt in Windows.
Operation of this command is to show the attributes of the file  like read only, system file ,hidden and many more.
With this command you can set and change the attributes of the complete folder and the file too.

You need to traverse to the directory where your content is saved, say it is the folder
A.


Then,
I will type “attrib A +s +h +a” to make it super hidden.
For, accessing A there are two methods,
1st Method- 
reset the attributes of the file/folder by the command  ”attrib A -a -s -h”
2nd Method–

Traverse to the directory where the your file /folder is located, in the explorer address click, if you are using Windows 7 you will see that the address has changed to older WIndows style path, here you only need to extend the address by A where A is the name of the folder. If it is a file, enter its name with its extension.
I prefer using second as after 1st time, your manually entered address gets into the history and you can use it when you want. You can also create the batch file to automate the 1st step.

Now, comes the explanation, by apping these attributes, you actully change the file/folder into a system folder having special securoty apart form the hidden files.
Remmeber, If someone enables viewing system files, you will be caught.
But, not everyone likes to see the system files to temper with it, specially in Windows.
