Default Cannot recover hidden pictures

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 9000 on O2 running on v4.6.0134 as supplied.
As an experiment I hid one picture and also a folder containing two more pictures. I cannot get them back.
As suggested in other posts I went to "explore" in Media app. and tried to retrieve them using "show hidden".
The one picture shows a thumbnail with ? but is "unable to display" and under "properties"it is shown as hidden with a tick in a box which I cannot untick.
The folder I hid appears but with nothing in it.
Does anybody have any ideas please? I don't want to hide any more until I am sure I can get them back.

Connect your bb to your computer and retrieve the file through windows explorer. Make sure your options are to "show hidden folder"..

Just a bit of advice. Don't put porn on your company blackberry and you won't have to hide it.

Lol, coffee on my monitor.

Yes, I believe the only way to unhide those is through Windows Explorer, then send em back to your phone with Roxio or whatever it is you use. I think its Roxio for the BB?
