"This item was not found" error

Hello All,

Everytime I want to create / move a folder I get the same error even after a fresh install:
"Screenshot in Dutch"

I got 2 Disks in my Laptop:
1) SSD Vertex 2
2) WD Caviar Black
The problem occurs on both of them:


I did the following things to make the SSD work beter:

- Disabled Services: Disabled Service List

- Disable Indexing: Foto --> Only on SSD

- Disable defragmentation Service & Schedule

- Disable Superfetch: Foto

- Disable Prefetch: Foto

- TRIM is enabled

Thanks to anyone who can Help!

Cannot find this item.
This item is no longer in C: \. Check the location of the item and try again.

Nieuwe Map = New Folder


I get these error when making a New Folder in "C:\"

Thanks for the very quick reply!

Look at this thread:

Renaming any folder produces "Could not find this item". - Microsoft Answers

There are reg fixes listed, make sure you get the right one x64

I finally got it.

I used the same solution for the similar issue in Windows Vista. Once i got to my company laptop, i exported this 2 registry keys.





HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\FolderDescriptions



Merged into my pc and voilą !!

The 'shell' command also works again (ex: shell: personal brings up the account folder)

I uploaded the reg file and you can get it here http://cid-fb5a28bc4a1cc9b6.skydrive...scriptions.rar

This is for Win7 x64. Use it at your own risk.
Suggest back up registry first as a precaution

Registry - Backup and Restore

Good luck. A Guy

"Item Not Found" when Moving or Renaming
Every time I move or rename a folder, an "Item Not Found" dialog opens. It says "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\...". When I click "Try Again", it moves/renames just fine. Does anyone know why it's happening and how I can make it stop? It's incredibly annoying.

"Item not found" bug when moving or renaming files/folders
Hello, I just made an account here because this bug is seriously bugging me. It shows up whenever I move or create any new files/folders. I have googled the registry fix and that doesn't seem to be working. Is there any other known fix? P.S. There is nothing wrong with Waterfox.

"Item Not Found" is driving me nuts
Hi all! For some unknown reason, my 64-bit 7 gives "Item Not Found" dialog whenever I try to move/delete a folder or an archive. All I have to do is to click "Try Again" for the command to go through, but it's driving me insane. What's wrong with my 7? Sample dialog box in an attachment.
