There is not straight forward approch to access/ write into hidden file however you can take this approch to write inot hidden files.

1)Set File as Visible so it can be overwritten

FileInfo myFile= new FileInfo(Environment.CurrentDirectory + @"\Files.File.txt");
myFile.Attributes = FileAttributes.Normal;

2)Overwrite Files

File.Copy(Environment.CurrentDirectory + @"\Files\File.txt", Environment.CurrentDirectory + @"\Files\File2.txt", true);

3) Set File as Hidden

FileInfo myFile= new FileInfo(Environment.CurrentDirectory + @"\Files\File2.txt");
myFile.Attributes = FileAttributes.Hidden;

Hope this will help you
