I am testing software and programdata is a hidden folder and I want to be able to copy training data.
Where in  Windows 7 can you change the option to view this folder.
Thanks in advance.

Flyfishtrout15--There are two settings affecting whether files and folders are hidden in Win 7.
Both are in Explorer|Organize| Folder and Search Options|View tab|
1)  Under Hidden Files and Folders check "Show hidden files, foldes and drives".
2)  Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".

I do not think you have to use 2) to see and open your ProgramData folder.

or any time at the root folder on command line, type "cd pro" and press the TAB key for a few times until you see "cd ProgramData" appears, press ENTER to enter the folder... :)
