Are you using Windows? If so, the hidden shares can be accessed over the network (assuming you have the access rights to do so) by prefixing the share name with the $ symbol

it depends. like what thebishop pointed out, having the right access privilege would make all folders, including hidden folders and files whenever you make an access to the network pc.

say for example, if you are the administrator or if your account is included under a folder's attributes which is either made a shared resource or a hidden folder within the network, you would still be able to access the folder when queried over the network by using the suffix symbol $ at the end of the network path.

--Check the below link.
www.brown.edu/Facilities/CIS/CIRT/help/netbiosnull.html

From the DOS shell type
nbtstat -A IP Address. It gives you NetBIOS Name Table. If you see <Computer-Name> with a Hex Value of <20>, you know that File Sharing and Server Services are enabled. If you see it enabled,
type net view \\IP Address and if you get *System Error 5 Has Occured* and *Access Is Denied*, then try this
net use \\IP Address\IPC$ "" /u:"" and it should say command completed successfuly. Then type net view \\IP Address, then it should list you all the resources.

But if the Server Services and NetBIOS Over TCP/IP is Disabled. . . . . you know what you can do, don't you?
