I moved a folder from my phone to computer using USB file transfer. Problem is that folder contains some hidden files. The folder is moved to my computer all right, but all hidden files were missing and the folder is not found in my phone either. Is there any way to recover those files?

Phone model: Galaxy M11 (with Android 11)

It didn't work. I think android file manager don't give access to its hidden files to a computer. So when i moved the folder, those hidden files became un-indexed and deleted. Because other non hidden files are moved successfully (Just my theory). Correct me if I'm wrong. And if any solutions available, please let me know. Thank you.
