    How to view hiber.sys file in windows?

    I read that windows stores the windows session into a file when it goes into hibernate state and this file is saved in computer memory. Can anybody please tell me how to see this file?

    Hi,
    the hiber.sys file is located in the root drive where the windows is installed,altough being sytem file it is hidden.
    to view this file you have to view hidden files and folder,to do this follow the following steps...
    in your root drive window select "tools" option located along with files,edit,etc.
    then click on folder option.then go to "view" tab.
    then check the block corresponding to "show hidden files,folder and drives.
    click on apply,then ok.
    and you are done .
    Although you cannot modify this file nor delete this file.:-)

    HI,

    HIBERFIL.SYS is a file the system creates when the computer goes into hibernation mode.Windows uses the file when it is turned back on.If you don't need hibernation mode and want to delete the file you need to turn the hibernation option off before Windows will allow you to delete the file.

    To view hiber.sys file in windows are as follows -

    1)Click on the start button.GOTO Control panel

    2) Click on power options

    3)Uncheck the Enable Hibernation box if you don't need the hibernation function.

    4)The file should now be able to be deleted.

    hi dear,

    hiber.sys files are created on computer due to hibernate option in computer these files created when the system is hibernated and window use these files when it turn on again from hibernate mode. These files are hidden from the user so you have to un hide them to see from organizer menu .
    >> you can also delete these files from here if you don't need them.you also remove your hibernate option.

    Hibernation feature of windows uses the hiberfil.sys file for storing the the current state of RAM of PC . Mode available in windows PC

    One is Sleep Mode
    Hibernation Mode

    So , second mode which is Hibernation Mode uses hiberfil.sys file for storing data and you can't open or delete that file as windows don't give permission for that .

    If file is hidden you can view file by enable show hidden items whose steps are given below :


    1. Go to my computer and click on organize .
    2. Then go to Files and folders .
    3. After clicking go to tab of pop up window of Views .
    4. select show hidden files .
