I appreciate the help!
Hello and welcome to the forums pinkybrain!

There may be a better way but this is the way I know. Download ES File Manager from the play store. After you install it and open it, tap the menu button on your phone. Select settings > file settings > check the box that says ' show hidden files'. You should now be able to see that folder.
