Hidden File Attribute?

By bobrace ·
I must be missing something. I have a directory that has about 4 trustees with R and F rights to it. Why when I choose a file in that directory and give it the H (Hidden) attribute, the trustees can still see the file? I can not figure this out.
Thanks

With Windows 95, 98, and NT you can still see hidden files if the explorer folder options is set to see hidden files.

The answer above is correct. However, there are ways to hide files from explorer in an NTFS partition. Try tip 0483 on NT Registry Hacks at this site: http://www.jsiinc.com/

hiddenfolder$ will hide it if it is not on there local PC then the user must know that folder name is hiddenfolder$ to gain access. Also your trustees have there settings to view hidden folders
