How can I delete my hidden files?

mahtab alam April 12, 2010

When I am trying to see my hidden files (I click “show hidden file” in folder option), my computer is not showing hidden files. The size of files is more than 1GB. That was a movie. I am using XP Professional. Please help me. How can I watch or delete that?

    you can see your hidden file by going to search section and then click on all files and folder search after that click on more options for search at the bottom then activate the choice search in hidden folders and files

      If you want to find a particular file you may also restrict your search to particular file types using the * symbol (i.e. by searching for *.avi or *.mp3). And also by file size and date. It's all right there in advanced search options just make sure to activate the choice 'search in hidden folders and files' as recommended above.
