I know this is probably an idiot question, but when you mark a folder as "hidden", how can you undo that?

Try this: Go to /Start/Settings/Control Panel/Folder Options/View Tab/ and put the Check Mark in "Show all hidden Folders and Files" and remove the check from "Hide protected operating system files

Did that work for you??

Also, if there's a possiblity that someone might be using this computer with an agressive file deletion agenda (e.g. youngsters), I would suggest hidding the files once again after you've retrieved what you want. As noted, MS cautions us regarding the possible disadvantages of hidden system files exposed to...shall we say scrutiny! ;)
