Some hidden folders doesn't appear in windows explorer even though -show hidden files and folders is selected-. For example dfsrprivate (folder of DFS server role) and "c:\documents and settings\user_name\local settings\temporary internet files\content.outlook".

How can I see it in Windows explorer?

Or the only way is to use Far or total commander?
