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.
Very minor problem with latest update to KDE 4.11 Update created the non-hidden folder fontconfig with a single file in it. I still have my original hidden .fontconfig with a few files in it. I moved the new file to the hidden folder and deleted the non hidden folder. Everything seems fine, just thought I'd mention it.
When i run the following command :
$ man kill > man_kill.txt
and view the file using cat,I am getting the file in correct format on the screen.
But when i use vi (in Linux) or any text editor (in Windows), i get many hidden characters which make the file unreadable.
A sample o/p when i use vi to view the file:
I have this external hard drive, and i used it in windows, now that i use it on Ubuntu, it is kind of annoying to see files like "system volume information" so how can i make it hidden?
or how can i make any file hidden?
