Strange Alert In My Documents

See the attached thumbnail. This shows up when I go to Documents. What does it mean?

Those files and folders were transferred from my Vista backup partition.

Hi Peter,

It means that you have a Included Folder in the library that can't be browsed like a normal folder. Instead, you can only type in the search box to search for any content from that one included folder in the library. In this case, it's probably just the default Sticky Notes and nothing to worry about.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I reworded the post above a bit to hopefully help make it easier to understand. It's a bit confusing, but I'm translating it from the incomplete Help and Support in Windows 7.

Thanks. I guess we'll have to wait until the official beta, if then, for any better H & S.
