Now that you have clarified the fact that these are your own files and not system "hidden" files, what method did you use to "hide" the files? Are they encrypted? You did this from your windows install, correct?

AFAIK windows 7 uses NTFS, so did you set some access control lists to the hidden files?
You could try to use gksudo
Code:
gksudo nautilus
Or you could try to use a live CD like puppy, to copy the files to your ubuntu partition.

If the files are encrypted, you will need to unencrypt them in windows first.

Kind regards
