3. Select few files and "Hide" it
4. View the Hidden Files.
5. Cannot view the Hidden Files.
6. Try the "Show Hidden Files".
7. BUT still cant view it
8. Download 3rd party FileExplorer (eg. ES File Explorer)
as suggested in this forum.
9. Able to view the "Hidden Files" stored in Internal Storage at FileExplorer/.Safebox folder.
10. But ALL hidden files in this folder were ENCRYPTED. There is NO WAY to DECRYPT it.
11. The file formats (example) shown were 32alpha-numeric
{[HIDDEN]}8b2a92081ebb8ab3427844000999df21.pdf_encrypted (for PDF Files) and

Dear MIUI Team,

Please HELP to SOLVE the bugs issue as mentioned above where I could not at anyway able to View, Decrypt or to Unlock the Hidden Files in File Explorer (even when I select Show Hidden Files) in my Xiaomi Redminote 4G. I was able to view the "Hidden Files" when this forumer in this forum provide a solution to view it in a 3rd party software called ES File Explorer where the "Hidden Files" were stored in the FileExplorer/.Safebox folder.
BUT unfortunately all the "Hidden Files" were turned into unviewable/unreadable "Encrypted Files".

Eventhough some forumers here suggest that we can unlock the "Hidden Files" in a private folder via the PIN Format/Pattern Lock (perhaps in another Xiaomi model0 but it's not applicable in RedmiNote 4G model because there isnt any feature/settings to do it.

The "Hidden Files" were encrypted with the following format (32 alpha-numeric encryption.
1. PDF Files  - {[HIDDEN]}a4195377a2bca96251bf89589c291134.pdf_encrypted
2. PICTURE Files -  .header_backup_8bcdd87e1s67598de31094a298gse213.pdf_encrypted

Kindly HELP!

Thank you!

Regards,
Ray Lee

I'm using Xiaomi Redmi 1s with MIUI Global 8.0 Stable version. I also got the same bug (couldn't decrypt) while trying to unhide some hidden files from my Micro SD Card. And even now I'm unable to copy anything to the Micro SD Card and unable to hide any new files. Any solutions...???

Its not a bug. "Show hidden files" option is not related with "Hide folders" function. To access "Hidden folder" you have to pull entire "File Explorer" menu. Refer the below link for further.

Hi Guys,

I think i got the possible solution for the reported bug.
I did face the same issue when upgraded the phone to MIUI 8, where it corrupted my sdcard (external).
And to my surprise i can't decrypt my hidden files.
What i did was:

1. The hidden raw files were saved under FileExplorer/.safebox on the following format (Exp JPG file):

-->.header_backup_43f41c92eaf6914f6e309629256d523d.jpg_encrypted_new
-->.thumb_43f41c92eaf6914f6e309629256d523d.jpg_encrypted_new
-->{[HIDDEN]}43f41c92eaf6914f6e309629256d523d.jpg_encrypted_new

2. I just copied the files back to the phone (either external or internal) and "hide" the selected file back.
3. Then i tried to view the file by pulling down the "FileExplorer Menu", able to view the encrypted file without any issue.
4. Also able to "unhide" the hidden file to a separate location in good shape.

Pls try that out.

Thanks,
Naresh.
