&^*%%$ Windows!

Just WHO came up with the idea that you wouldn't want to see system and hidden files?

I just backed up an entire HD to a USB HD, then formatted and reinstalled Windows. I got ready to copy the data back from the USB drive and the folder wasn't there . After a few anxious seconds I realized that Windows ridiculous nanny-state, protect-the-user-from-herself, hide-anything-that-might-look-like-a-hidden-folder nonsense had hidden my backup folder!

It makes me wish I had pirated GWBASIC back in '78 just to get even with that little nerd.
