    Hello,
    You can hide the files and folder by using a third party software.
    You can download it from the internet.
    The name of the software is Folder hider.
    The link to download is http://download.cnet.com/Free-Folder...-10884537.html
    Folder requires a password set up at the begining of the application.

    You can open the software , enter the password and then hide or unhide the folder you want.
    By this if someone tries to unhide it with the system he cannot do it.

    Re: How can I hide my files and folder like windows system files?

    HI,

    Almost anyone knows how to make a “hidden” folder in Windows, but then again almost anyone knows how to make explorer show hidden folders. Let’s take a look at how to make a folder so hidden, only you will know its there.

    Anyone that has used Windows for a while knows that they can right-click on a file or folder and edit its properties, more so its attributes to make it a so called “hidden” file or folder. The problem is that just as many people know you can show files and folders that have the “hidden” attribute by simply changing a radio button under the folder view options. The easiest way to make a real hidden file or folder is to mark it as an important operating system file, that way Windows wont display it even if explorer is set to display hidden files and folders.

    Follow the steps -

    1)Press the Win + R key combination and type cmd then hit the enter button.

    2)Go ahead and type:
    attrib +s +h “C:\Users\Taylor Gibb\Desktop\Top Secret”

    You will need to replace the stuff in the inverted comma’s to an absolute path of a folder or file on your system that you want to make hidden

    3)Now if I go look for the Top Secret folder on my Desktop it is gone, even with explorer set to show hidden files and folders.

    4)To unhide the file or folder you can run the same command, except this time use “-“ instead of the “+” signs.

    attrib -s -h “C:\Users\Taylor Gibb\Desktop\Top Secret”


    Hope this was informative, now go hide all your things......

    Re: How can I hide my files and folder like windows system files?

    For Windows 7 & Vista Users
    Step 1. Click on Start / windows button and go to the Computer option. Now click the Organize tab and click Folder and Search Options in the drop down menu.



    Step 2. Inside folder options, go to the View tab. Now click on Hidden files and folders option and make sure that the “Do not show hidden files and folders” option is checked (it usually is by default). Click on Apply button after you are done
    Step 3. Now go to any folder which you want to hide. Right click on the folder. Go to properties option from the right click menu.
    Step 4. In general tab check the Hidden box in Attribute section and click on Apply button.
    Step 5. Now confirm the change by checking the appropriate option.
    This will make your folder hidden.


    Hiding Files and Folders In Windows XP
    1. For those using Windows XP, the steps are same except for the first step. Here, you need to click on Tools at the top of the Window you are on and there you’ll find Folder options.

    2. The rest of the steps are same as above.


    One extra step to ensure privacy of your files is to transfer them from common folders like My Documents, My Pictures etc to a separate folder which people don’t browse normally, and then hide that folder.

    Re: How can I hide my files and folder like windows system files?

    Hi,

    First , hide the file or folderfrom its "Properties".
    Disable "Show Hidden files/folders" option from "Tools -> Folder Options".
    Disable "Folder Options" using Registry Editor
    Disable Registry Editor also.
    GotoUser Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System

    In right-side pane, set "Prevent access to Registry editing tools" to either Not Configured or Disabled and it'll re-enable Registry Editor.
    Rename gpedit.msc to some other name like "AskVG.msc" and then hide it. You can find it in "Windows\System32" folder.
    Now whenever anyone tries to run "gpedit.msc", Windows will show an error message "file not found". But you can always run it using the new name "AskVG.msc".

    This way you can hide files and folders with complete success. But be cautious as if you make error or forget steps the whole system can go upside down.
    Thanks.
