How This Tip Works

Windows Me is more protected than ever before, so basically it doesn't display at all the system protected files such as the content of the restore folder, etc... If you choose to display hidden files in the folder options it has got absolutely no impact on the protected files that'll still be hidden. To display them in a my computer window, click Tools/Folder Options/View and uncheck 'hide protected operating system files'
