Question How do I have Windows set to copy all files & folders including hidden & sys. files?

Hi again everyone!

Thanks again for all the help you have given me over the last few months.

I needed help in setting up my computer for a GPS system. I have read that I need to set up the computer so it will copy all files & folders including hidden and system files.

How do I have Windows set to copy all files & folders including hidden & sys. files?

Can someone help me? I do not know how to set this up.

Freddy

Under Tools>Folder Options
View>Advance Settings: Hidden files and folders
click 'Show hidden files and folders'

So when you copy things, you can also copy the hidden stuff.
