By default, Windows XP keeps important system files and folders hidden to keep users from deleting files they shouldn’t. This Video tutorial is for beginners only. This is also great for backing up Outlook Because Outlook.pst is inaccessible unless Files and Folder is unhidden.
Show hidden files:
1. Go to My Computer, Click on Tools Tab double-click on Folder Options.
2. Click on the View tab, and then click the radio button for “Show hidden files and folders”
