hi,
Open up the "Control Panel"

Click on "Folder Options"

select the "view" tab

Under "Advanced Settings" you should see "Show Hidden Files and Folders"

Select it, hit apply and you should be good to go.

You may also need to uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"

then you may proceed for a search.

Click Start/Run,type regedit then press Ok
Navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advan ced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

Now right click on,and delete the value "CheckedValue" in the right hand window.

Now create a new "DWORD Value" called exactly CheckedValue in the right hand window.
Double click on CheckedValue.
In the opening 'Edit DWORD Value' box,set the 'Value data:' to 1

Press Ok,exit regedit,restart your pc.

Hi, I'm afraid you won't be able to recover that folder.

However, if you launch a search in the search box for the name of one of the files contained in the folder, then select this file in the "found entries" list, right-click it and select "go to file location" in the context menu, you might find the entirety of your folder. All you have to do then is copy those files to a new folder on your desktop and voilà !

Only problem is you're gonna need to be using Vista or Windows 7, because XP doesn't feature this "go to file location" entry...
