Please ignore

Very sorry - for some reason the file's not in that folder. FileZilla was pointing to another folder. Please ignore.

Cannot see hidden file on remote system

Using WinSCP 5.10.2 on Windows 10 Home 64-bit local machine.
Remote machine is a Unix (don't know flavour) system.
Both FTP and SFTP protocol

Problem: I can't see a hidden file (.htaccess) on the remote machine. I've tried ctrl-alt-H nd refreshing the directory but can't see it. It's there if I look with FileZilla.

I've attached a screengrab of a session showing what I've been doing (about 35 sec long). The status bar shows the ctrl-alt-H activity.

Any other info you'd like?
