i need help on unhiding my videos which i saved in shared docs using the dos because my folder options are not showing. i even dont remember the names of the files.please help me coz i really need these files.thanx.

why use one of the dos commands? you can unhide them with windows explorer. Just select view options and check the box to show all files.

But if you insist -- type <c:\ help atrtrib>

D:\Users\AncientDragon>help attrib
Displays or changes file attributes.

ATTRIB [+R | -R] [+A | -A ] [+S | -S] [+H | -H] [+I | -I]
[drive:][path][filename] [/S [/D] [/L]]

+ Sets an attribute.
- Clears an attribute.
R Read-only file attribute.
A Archive file attribute.
S System file attribute.
H Hidden file attribute.
I Not content indexed file attribute.
Specifies a file or files for attrib to process.
/S Processes matching files in the current folder
and all subfolders.
/D Processes folders as well.
/L Work on the attributes of the Symbolic Link versus
the target of the Symbolic Link

I wish with this example U can get the videos
for example c:\my videos\video.1 is your folder and actually u don know dat the video1 is the file name do as follow
open DOS
c:\> is the starting stage then type
c:\>cd my videos
c:\my videos>dir/ah then the hidden files directory is opened now U
type the video name in the explorer bar as follows
c:\my videos\video1
