Hidden by system?

Try opening "Folder options" (search folder options, and hit enter)
Go to the second tab in the window, and tick off "Hide protected systemfiles" and tick on "Show hidden files, and folders" and hit apply but DONT CLOSE THE WINDOW.
now look in the folder where you extracted info.dat and see if its kinda faded (if it is, then its your system that have protected the file for some reason..)

now reverse the settings from before (tick no "Hide protected systemfiles" and "Dont show hidden files, and folders" and hit apply, ok.)
