What's the purpose?

Anyways FileSetAttrib() you can set to System file and it's not visible to anything.

uhm... thanks, but i want something else than file attrib, since it could be visible when folder options on explorer modified.

Yes it can, untick the "Hide protected operating system files"

file attrib is a bad way to hide files... any other way please?

Mine is always unticked but I can't seem to see it, maybe you can redirect the folder to somewhere else. As you move it and relink it.

Depends on the OS. I know theres quite a few ways for Pre-NT Systems. I know that there are ways that exist fin Windows XP & Vista to make a folder inaccessable, but at this time, I do not know what they are. Reason I know there are ways in XP and Vista is because of the finger-print scanner, you can completely lock folder access out.

Actually the setting for Hide/Show system file is in Registery, maybe add a loop to check it and if not just RegWrite again.

At my school, when I set File Attrib to Hidden+System+ReadOnly, I can't seem to see it anyhow. So yeh.
