  1. Hi there..

    a fren got this problem here..

    he "hid" his file by accident ,by right-click or so , l presumed (as he
    desribled his problem to nme over the phone), it happen so fast that he did
    not take note of what's happening at that time

    having throughtly search theu his whole HDD (since the files are being
    "hidden" somewhere not "deleted") and did a "system restore" dun seems to
    solve his problem.

    So is that anyway to retrive his "hidden" files? his OS is WIn XP SP2.. any
    more info will be provided and thanks for any fedback

    In Black Tractor spewed forth:
    Turn on hidden files: open a folder (like My Documents, My Pictures, etc.),
    click on Tools, Folder options, then the View tab. In the list of view
    options, select "Show hidden files and folders".
