    How to reveal hidden folders

    I have partitioned my HD, and G: is Music & misc. I had many folders for all of my CD's and converted Vinyl and backed them up using GRBakpro to a 32G flash drive. I have had issues with G, so I did a full format and then restored my music folders using GRBakPro. Not all of them restored, but this is not my issue.
    I then tried to copy folders from my flash drive that didn't seem to restore, but got the message, the folder already exists. But it does not show in Windows explorer. So GRBakPro screwed up and created folders that are now hidden. I don't care about this, perhaps I will take it up with them sometime, but........
    My current issue is, how do I get windows to reveal these hidden folders?

    Hidden folders

    I installed `Kane and Lynch` on my PC twice in Program Files(x86) folder but I can`t find them (2 folders with game). But free space on my HDD is lower. So there`re those folders on my hdd. I use option `unhide` hidden folders but still can`t find them. Any suggestions? How can i delete those hidden folders?

    When I run istallation for this game I can see those folders in Program Files(x86) folde.

    I`m using Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
