Hello,

I have installed a free hide folder software to hide a file. Due to some virus problem, I had to format my C drive, but my folder was in D drive. Obviously, after formatting, the free hide folder software disappeared and I had forgotten to unhide the folder before formatting.

Now I need the folder but cant get it.

Please help me to find the folder.

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 6.0

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.
i deleted the registry value
and made a new one

however the hidden folder is still hidden

is there a way to restore it ?
