Isnt that the whole idea behind hiding something? Once its hidden, you dont see it anymore...??
What am I missing here?

When you do a search. by default windows will not look in hidden folders.

You will need to tick the little box that says search in hidden and system folders. (You may need to do an advanced search to be able to do this?)
