share hidden folder and see its contents on another pc

hi
i have a folder residing on one win 7 that is hidden. i have shared it and created a map letter to it on another pc. but the contents of this folder are not visible only when it is hidden. i need to see its contents on another pc while it remains hidden on the pc on which it resides.

how to achieve it ?

If you hide a folder make sure you just hide the folder and not the contents with it. Actualy Windows 7 will ask you this question when applying the hidden attrib, if you want to change these settings for just the folder or also the files and sub folders in it. Choose only this folder and the contents will stay visible, also when viewed as a shared folder on an other computer.
