I am trying to use subprocess with find or os.walk to locate certain files in hidden directories and list their permissions and change them. I am running as root. but no matter what I try the hidden directories are not seen. when I do the equivalent in a terminal with a shell command all is good.
You will need to provide details on what you are doing.
Include which os you are using and a code sample that fails.
In what sense / by what means are the directories “hidden”?
What operating system is this?
It turns out this directory was created after my code tried to read it
