If you are sure it isn't a System file try:
c:\directory\Attrib a*.* -h. This should remove the hidden attribute. For more info type attrib /?

1. Go to Command prompt and go to that location where the directory is situated.

2. type the following

attribute -h -r -s directory name

and check the directory in windows

Previous answers will work (been there), also might want to check the permission settings as well.
