How can I make a file or folder I just created hidden (in Windows) while I am booted into Linux? Basically I'm dual booting linux and windows. I want to create a file/folder in my common data partition that I want to stay hidden in both Windows and Linux.
I will name it something like .secret_stuff so that it's hidden in Linux.
Okay. So on one of my friends computer, which runs Windows 8, I needed to password protect a folder. I did it using command prompt on windows by running:
attrib +s +h
I then made the batch file to type a password and converted it to a executable file so it couldn't be edited if someone took it from me, or something like that.... It worked. The file was hidden and everything.
