Windows 7: Wallpaper folders not displayed

04 Mar 2012   #1

Win 7 64 bit
Wallpaper folders not displayed

Recovering from a hard drive going bad. Could not do a complete backup, errored out, but was able to copy the folders i really could not afford to lose.The problem, before , i was able to setup my background wallpaper to change pictures every few minutes. I have dozens of folders and thousands of pics, all under my profile pictures folder.Have added that folder to the pictures libary.When i try to setup my wallpaper, i see the 4 pictures in the root of the folder, but NOT the directories. Another "strange" thing, if i go under the picture libary, it shows includes 2 locations, my pictures directory and public pictures , but the public pictures shows "unresponsive". Besides this little problem everything else is back up and running normally. I have checked a few other forums, the folders are not hidden or have any strange attrbutes set. WHat am i missing?
