Windows 7: Contents of folder not showing up

Contents of folder not showing up

Hello!

I reinstalled my OS about a month ago, and took everything I wanted to keep and put it on an external hard drive. Everything was fine except one folder that I had moved to the external hard drive. The folder was a combination of videos and pictures, and it had stopped displaying the folder preview, and when I look in the folder it appears to be empty. Looking at the properties of the folder, it tells me that the folder tells me it does have files in it.

I moved a copy back to my computer, and the files still aren't showing up. Does anyone know how to get the files to show back up/fix this?

Thanks for your time,
-Mike

The content of the folder may be hidden .

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide


Check it first.

If not hidden, the copy you backed to the computer, try to restore previous version.
