    I cannot hide the $RECYCLE.BIn and System volume information folders..


    I cannot hide the $RECYCLE.BIn and System volume information folders..
    I have tried changing the settings using the view tab, deleting with ownership settings and used malwarebytes to scan for any viruses but haven't found anything.
    I don't think they're anything malicious but don't want to see them on each of my four hard drives...

    Hello xero, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Double check to make sure that you have selected (dot) Don't show hidden files, folders, and drives in Folder Options to see if that may help.

    Run the commands below in an elevated command prompt, and post back the results to see what attributes it shows for the folders.

    attrib "C:\$Recycle.Bin"

    attrib "C:\System Volume Information"

    Ok. I see the problem. The hidden attribute has been cleared from these folders. You can use the commands below in an elevated command prompt to set the hidden attribute back to them.

    attrib +H "C:\$Recycle.Bin" /S /D

    attrib +H "C:\System Volume Information" /S /D

    Are they hidden now after checking the Hide protected operating system files box in Folder Options?

    Tip - If "Developer Mode" is selected under Settings, Updates and Security, For Developers - then the System & hidden files, file extensions etc., will be visible in Explorer.
