You might have to unhide them from inside the phone. If the files are hidden on your phone...your computer wont unhide them. You have to unhide them in your phone so your computer can see them. You can use total commander to navigate to the files you cant see and tap and hold the file and click properties to see if it is hidden or not. Total commander will all files on your device even hidden ones. Hope that is what you were looking for and asking.

Aaaaaah I just realized what you were asking. You are wanting to open the windows directory located on your phone from your computer! Yeah I dont know if that is possible. I am not even able to do that from my computer. Let me double check.

Edit: Yeah I cant even open that directory from my computer. When I click my device it seems it shows everything but that directory. So just to let you know you are searching an answer to a problem that really has no solution. The only way to open the windows directory is straight from your phone. IMO. If there is a way then maybe someone can chime in with the answer. But like I said I am not able to open mine from the computer either.

Exactly. Ive learned on this site....saying "oh well" is sometimes the best solution you can find.

It may make a difference whether you're connecting and synching via ActiveSync or connecting without synching in WMDC. Is that the case? If you're synching, the Windows directory on your phone will be inaccessible from the computer.

you can use the file explorer tool in my mobiler. the latest version is really fast when it opens the windows dir.
