Trying to see my files larger than 500mb inside C:\users

Get-ChildItem C:\users\cata\ -recurse | where-object {\$_.length -gt 500mb} | Sort-Object length | ft fullname, length -auto

FullName
Length
--------
------

As you can see a little bit below, it doesn't search inside hidden folders like AppData.

However, searching explicit in appdata lists an item which previously hasn't been listed.

Get-ChildItem C:\users\cata\appdata -recurse | where-object {\$_.length -gt 500mb} | Sort-Object length | ft fullname, length -auto
FullName
Length
--------
------
C:\users\cata\appdata\Roaming\tobedeleted\CentOS-6.0-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso 4238800896

And if I try to search with -force parameter, it says access denied, even though I can manually go inside the appdata directory. Is it possible to force powershell to go inside the hidden directories such as C:\Users\cata\AppData and search for files?
