Hi ,
I have a folder say 'Base' under which i have many files and sub-directories as well.
Now I want to hide the parent folder 'Base' and all of its sub-directories and files.
Is there a way to achieve this task using C on Operating Systems using low level api's.

If I am not wrong I have come across examples on encryption and decryption through algorithm but these algorithms most of the times apply to text(characters or numbers) in data files but how can i achieve encryption and decryption on folders and its files.

I am trying to achieve it in C. Please guide me.

I Dont see what "Hiding of folders" has to do with encryption. You are looking for OS dependent functions, so nothing that pure C can provide for you. You may have a look into windows.h or whatever OS you're on.
