You may have read instructables where you make an "invisible" folder and later decided to remove it only to find out that it wont go away and you can't move it! In this instructable I will show you a batch file I wrote to remove your invisible folder.

Step 1: Download and Open the Batch File.
Start by downloading and opening the batch file associated with this step. If it says that it doesn't know how to open the file, then tell it to open it with "cmd.exe". Now enter the address of the root folder which your invisible file/folder is and press Enter.
Will take you to Kevin's desktop.
Step 2: Choose File
Once you enter an address it will take you there. If the address doesn't exist then it will take you to the desktop. It will then list all the files and folders. Carfully look through the list and find a file without a name. A file/folder name "." or ".." is not it! In my case the fil is named "0A00~1", so I enter that in and press Enter.
Step 3: Rename
Now enter a new name for the folder. NOTE: It will not work if you add uncommon characters or spaces, so just enter somthing like invisible_folder.
Step 4: Almost Done
Now go to where the file is and delete it! I didn't make it so it deleted the file just renamed it because if the user selects the wrong file they could accidently delete it.
