Folder Changing Magic! - Windows Hacking

If you have some data which you want to be safe and invisible to other people, I've got a real nice trick for you. You can use this simple trick to convert the required folder into Control Panel, Recylce Bin or My Computer. Only the use of command line will be able to give you your folder back.

Now to start, let the name of the folder you want to hide as MYFOLDER.

Now, you just have to rename your folder:

To convert it into control panel rename it like this.

To convert it into My Computer rename it like this.

To convert it into Recycle Bin rename it like this.

Consider that you've converted your folder into Control Panel. Now to make your folder accessible again, go to command line. Now change the path to the directory which has your folder. For eg. if the folder is located like this C:\Data\MYFOLDER, type "cd C:\Data".

Now it will show this:


Now type this:

ren MYFOLDER.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} MYFOLDER

Notice that the key is same as the one you used to convert the folder into Control Panel. You will get your folder back.

Note: This method is not for the average PC user. It's meant for the advanced users who know and understand the consequences of playing with the registry.
