Hiding a particular folder



I don't know if this is the right forum to ask this question so sorry if it is not.

Anyway, what I am trying to do is this. I have (2) installations of Windows 7 which are:
1 - Windows 7 Family Install
2 - Windows 7 Business Install

They are bot set as the C: drive and I am using EasyBCD for the Boot menu. On one of the installations I have a folder for my business called: Business Folder but I want it to be hidden from other people when they are in my Windows 7 Family Install. Is this at all possible?

Thanks for the help :grinning:

How about right clicking the folder > properties > tick "hidden".
On business W7 set folder options like this
On home W7 don't allow viewing of hidden or system files.

Or if you don't want hidden files showing on the business install just create a shortcut on the desktop to the folder.
