Hidden Folders on your PC/Laptop

Hello! I am a Windows user and I have a lot of different data on my laptop some of which I cannot share with others since sometimes the privacy of my laptop may be compromised. So I have to hide a few folders from other users and only I know where they are. One of that folder contained some legal documents and I wanted to give those documents to my lawyer via USB. So initially I just sent him the main folder in which the sub folder was hidden but he could not find the sub folder and hence could not un hide it. So the next time, I revealed the sub folder and then gave it to him via USB. But even after that, he could not access the documents. Why is this happening? Do hidden folders from your computer become inaccessible from other computers forever?

I don’t think so. If it is only a document created in Microsoft Office Word, it should open on other computer that has Microsoft Office Word. Check your document first and verify the word processor you used to create the document whether you used Microsoft Office Word or Apache OpenOffice.

The only difference of the 2 is that with Microsoft Office Word, it can’t open a document created in Apache OpenOffice while Apache OpenOffice can open a document created in Microsoft Office Word. After verifying the software you used, ask your lawyer what word processor he or she is using.

If you used Microsoft Office Word, your lawyer should also have Microsoft Office Word on his or her computer. If you used Apache OpenOffice, tell your lawyer to use Apache OpenOffice as well because the document will not open in Microsoft Office Word. Also before sending the USB flash drive to your lawyer, try to open the document first on the USB flash drive using a different computer.

Well it’s not like that that hidden files and folder are inaccessible form another computer there must be a misunderstanding. Best solution for this problem is you simply make a .rar or zipfile file by using winrar and while making a .rar or .zip there is a password option so just give it a password it will protect your documents or anything if someone get access to it. If you want to share it with someone simply tell him the password.
