Windows 7: File not showing after moving

File not showing after moving

I tried to organize my photos, after moved all photo files from c:\photos\A folder to c:\photos\B folder through drag-drop in window explorer, my all files are disappeared. I cannot see any file in the B folder (of course, the A folder is empty now), but from the B folder properties, it shows the B folder contains 32 files, and the size is 109MB. I don't have any search filter applied, but the window explorer shows "This folder is empty" on the B folder.
BTW: I can see all my photos through ACDSee in the B folder.

Hello Bill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have not already, does refreshing (F5) the B folder window or restarting the computer have them show up afterwards?

If not, then check to if you may have set the photos to be hidden somehow by using the tutorial below to show all hidden files. If they are hidden (faded), then you could just unhide them.

Hope this helps,
