Can't seem to remove hidden folder

I have three folders on my X drive in Windows 8.1 that I can't seem to see with Explorer.  I know they're there because the backup software sees them.  When I use CLI to access I'm told that access is denied.  I'd like to delete those files but I'm not sure how to change the security settings so that I can do that.  I suspect that the security settings will have to be changed via the CLI, and yes - the Explorer should be showing me hidden files.

$recycle bin
$system volume information

in your folder options uncheck hide protected operating system files (recommended)

YES!  That was the problem, I was logged in as the administrator, but I wasn't running the CLI with the extra "runas"
