How do I delete hidden files?

  pcbobby 13:16 06 Oct 2005

I deleted all old material from my floppy discs, or at least I thought I had.
When I tried to save some work to a floppy disc this morning – I was confronted with a message that the disc was full!

When I checked the ‘A’ drive properties – yes, it was full – of hidden files!
In my simple way I tried to reveal the files, but to no avail.
How do I delete these hidden files from the floppy disc please?
