Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

Hello,

 

I am afraid not. The issue is not with my icons. Let me go into detail of what really happened.

 

I had some pictures in my Blackberry Picture Folder i.e. Menu/Media/Pictures. I moved these pictures into a new folder i.e. /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures/New Folder/Camera Pic1.jpg.

 

Then I hid the folder i.e. /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures/New Folder.

 

Now problem is that I cannot simply locate that folder from anywhere. Tried the Desktop Manager as well but could not locate. I hope you understand what the issue is not and can help me. Thanks again from your previous response.

 

Regards,

 

 

Maverick

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

if the path of your folder starts with /Media Card/
then you can browse it using the windows explorer. Please read :

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

Thanks. Needed to know if we could manage a way of doing so through the BB itself.

 

No issues. Used your note andfound the folder and was able to access the "lost" folder. Much appreciated.

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

for your knowledge, there's a way that does not require a PC. But I don't remember it.

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

To unhide without using a computer, try this.

 

Main Menu > Media > (highlight pictures) > press Blackberry button > Explore > Media Card > Blackberry > pictures > press Blackberry button > show hidden

 

In short, navigate to the folder where you hid the folder/file and press the Blackberry button and choose show hidden.  you'll then see the hidden item in the list as a semi-transparent item.  Highlight the item > press the Blackberry button > Properties > uncheck "Hidden".  You can then go back and access the file as you normally would.

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

Same thing happened to me.  Go to your Media Icon, click it, then hit your menu key and go to Explore.  Then go to Device Memory, Home, User, and then you're there!  Good luck!

Re: How to Unhide a hidden folder

hi,

 

Just a quick question as i have followed your links to unhide folders, items.  I have mangaed to hide all my pictures, music, videos and i am trying to unhide the items and folders.  However i have followed every step up until unselecting hidden with the tick. It appears in a transparent form.

Hope you can help. The problem occured when i tried to back up my contacts on the desktop manager.

Further more everytime i try and open roxio is crashed with the orange screen.

 

Thanks

Niall
