Can not unhide folder in windows 8

Recommended Posts

I am in need of any help for the following problem:


I accidently hide my the windows default folder "Videos" in my documents.  When I immediately went to unhide the folder I opened the program and entered my password and all looked fine.  When I selected the folder in the program dashboard and selected "unhide" it reads "Folder can not be unhidden"  Access denied."  After trying the suggestions I found online from this site as well as other help posts I am still without resolution.  I used wise cleaner and found the files but they are not able to be recovered.  I did a system restore to a couple days prior and was able to unhide the folder but nothing is showing in the folder now.  I have emailed support twice and have not received a response.  I am hoping it is because they are very busy and not because this a known problem for which there is no viable solution.  Any help would be greatly appreciated... even if it is to deliver the unfortunate reality that I am not going to be able to recover the files. And if that is the case, how do I delete those files to regain that space on my hard drive? 


Much thanks,
