    This just makes the file a hidden system file/folder which can also be unhidden under the same control panel applet!!!!

      No bro, even after unhiding files from Control Panel the file or folder hidden by this command doesn’t shows up. 🙂

    if you can search the hidden files from the hidden folder, windows finds them.

      The name of the hidden file will only be known to you 😉
      So only you can search them 😉
