Invisible Folder

I was a torrent and I found out that it was going to a certain folder, BUT that folder is inside an invisible folder. Do you guys know how to make it visible again...I tried in "get info" but I didn't find anything for it? Please help.

Use the Finder menu Go>'Go to Folder' to transfer your files. Then go to your torrent's options menu and change the directory for your stored torrents.

the first two were just to show the invisible files, the last two were to reset back to normal.

If you can't move the folder try this in terminal
Code:
sudo mv (drag file to be moved into term window) (space) (Drag Destination folder to term window) enter and enter pass
