Finding hidden folders

Helpful | Level 6

Is there any Dropbox API in java that finds the path of the hidden folders(i.e .dropbox.cache) and lists files inside it?

No, the API doesn't offer a way to find these folders. Note that these are local folders though, for the Dropbox desktop client, and don't exist on the server. The Dropbox API is server-based.

The closest thing is the info.json file for finding the Dropbox folder itself, documented here:
