I had hidden a folder named "d" in the hard drive "E" using command prompt like E:>attrib +h +s d .. And it opens by the command E:>attrib -h -s d .. But my laptop showed some problems and so I had to reinstall Windows..
I installed Windows 7 ultimate.. And then when I tried to access that hidden folder, it is showing ACCESS DENIED.. Please help me out I am in a big problem.

You don't have permission to access this folder as you've done a reinstall.

you will have to go to Tools > Folder Options > and Tick show hidden files/folders.

from there, open the drive and right click the folder > properties > security and take ownership.

the folder is hidden. CMD hides in such a way that it doesnt show the folder.

1. Go to Start > Run > type cmd

2. Dos will open type cd\

3. Now type the drive letter in which you want to Unhide the files lets suppose in my case its E: this will open the E: drive

4. If you want to see all hidden files and folders type E:\>dir/ah (*you will now see the files/folders with hidden attributes )

5. Type "attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h" if you're going to unhide files, you should type the whole name plus the extension (example: attrib banner.psd -r -a -s -h)

6. Now check you drive.. it should be ther
