Windows explorer not recognizing filenames with periods -for example " .foldername "
I have plugged my usb from my note 2 into my laptop and opened File explorer. I have allot of files with periods before their name and file explorer is not recognizing them.
for example - " .filename " or " .foldername "
is there a setting or something im missing? how do I get windows to "see" these folders?

From command prompt, navigate to the folder above the folders that have leading "." then type the command:
Substitute the name of each folder for folder name. You will have to run this command once for each folder. Windows doesn't like leading "." in a folder name but Linux doesn't care.
