    I have broken the screen on my s3, and have several hidden folders and files using a '.' at the beginning of the filename. I know that Windows won't find the files/folders that use the '.' method, but would it be possible to emulate Linux on my pc (running Windows 8) to find and rename these files?

    Just turn on Show Hidden Files and Folders in your Windows folder view settings, and you'll be able to access them.

    If you have a '.' At the beginning of the filename you can't view them on Windows.
