Hidden folder on web server *HELP*

A friend has a website up, wanted me to help him with it. so this is what happened.

I log into the FTP site, found the directory which has the content of the website (called mainsite_html) so i wanted to copy that entire directory to my harddrive. I click on the file, drag it to my desktop, then cuteftp refreshes and that folder i wanted to get DISAPPEARS! so i was like damn, checked out the site and yet all the content is still there.

So i says screw cuteftp and used the webbased admin file manager control panel thing. Go back to that same directory with the 'mainsite_html' folder, and it's not there! so i try loading the site again, and i can still see the website yet the folder in the directory is hidden. i tried manually typing in the path to the folder and it says it's not there.

What is going on? and what can i do? the site is there, but the folder with all the site files are hidden. the files are there cause the quota for how many MB is used is at 9.1mb, which is mostly the site.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
