you can use characters not recognized by windows (generated by keeping the ALT key pressed and typing any number other than used by general alphabets,numbers or special characters) for renaming the folder.

eg : ren abc {199}{198}{199}

where numbers in curly braces are to be typed while keeping alt key pressed. release the alt key between the group of numbers.

Hope this helps

I believe that directories that start with a $ (dollar sign) in the front as invisible to the system.

Though, if you are using the NTFS file system then you will probably find a hard time trying to keep anyone with equal to higher privaliges on the system out of your directory.

If you are using FAT32 or lower, then you might be able to create a directory as above, but honestly, I dont think you will achieve much without the use of 3rd party software.
