    System Files

    Well, i was listening to music with winamp 5.1 and then this video came up, i checked its location and it came from "C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-861567501-764733703-1060284298-1004\Dc1\-tupac - hail mary (video).mpeg" So i went to Folder option and checked so that i could see the Protected System Files. And then i checked C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-861567501-764733703-1060284298-1004\ and there was no Dc1 folder and No tupac video. How come i can't see it. If i can see the System Protected FIles i should be able to see the video too. When i got to properties of C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-861567501-764733703-1060284298-1004\ it shows me that there are 45.05 MB's in there, but when i open the folder there is nothing in there. Explanation?

    Can you see it in the recycle bin?

    If what you're after is to save a streaming media to harddisk, there are a few tools that can do that.

    I have seen this in a security context, if you use certain ascii characters at the front of a file, Windows can't "see" it. I think we had a similar (in principle) problem with names in AO?.....trolls found that if they used certain characters, they couldn't be negged.

    As I recall it is shift+number pad numbers to get these characters?


    Cheers

    Actually it is Alt + number(as 255 = " ") (there is an askii character between the quotes)

    That doesn't work in Windows XP.

    jdenny: It's not streaming media. I opened it WIndows Media Player, and went File->Save As. ANd isaved it on the desktop again, it saved it in 1 second. And not the Recycle Bin is empty. Can it be something like a Temp File from the Recycle Bin.

    MemorY,

    I am not sure how you "do it in XP" but I think that XP will not see the file, just like other versions of Windows?

    HEH HEH HEH....you must be having quite a night nihl. MemorY is right. XP will display files with undisplayable characters in the name field. It is the first Windows operating system to deo that...I believe.

    Do your Windows Explorer show hidden file? Hide extention of know file? Hide extention of system file?

    I got everything enabled, i see every extension there is, known and unknown, and every file should be displayed. It's not like this is a big problem, i was just curious how come i can't see the file.
