OK then I won't ask why you want to hide a folder on your USB drive.

Whatever, Windows won't allow a namess folder so I don't see how you can do it, whether using a batch file or not. Even if it is possible using true DOS (which I doubt) Windows Command Prompt runs within Windows anyway.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

alt-160 won't be "nameless"; you might just make a mess.

If I write "ren Myfolder Alt+0160" the folder name becomes Alt+0160. How I can rename it to appear nameless using batch?

I don't think you can.
But I'll stay tuned.

You could hide it [with attrib] but anybody who knows what he's doing can unhide it.

Are you trying to make it hard to remove? If so perhaps this line of thinking may help.

Yes, #9 is also part of the trick to make sure a flash drive doesn't get a specific virus by putting a CON folder inside an Autorun.inf folder.
