I am not using McAfee (Symantec Endpoint Protection) like others that I have seen with this problem, but this happened to me, too. It was either while I was trying to view hidden folders, or when I was changing the permissions to "full control" in the same folder properties window. Either way, all files disappeared and "restoring default libraries" did not help. System restore was also useless so it was "undone". I went into the Folder Options in the Control Panel and selected to view all hidden files. I can now see everything but they are all still in "hidden" mode. Thanks to your fix program, I can now see my libraries.
My C:\Users\*User Name*\ is still hidden and so are all my files in the libraries. Can this be fixed?
Could this be indicative of a different/bigger problem??? Thanks for your expertise and help.
