Cant view hidden folders

  1. So I just set up my old laptops harddrive as an external harddrive. When I tried accessing a folder that was hidden it denied me access. I read around and found turning off simple file sharing than right clicking the hidden folder and going to sharing and security tab. From here I was supposed to do a few things under the security tab but it will not let me do this. When I click sharing and security a message comes up saying I do not have permission to view or edit current permission settings. How can I fix this or how can I access the hidden folder?
