Hi Rmahlmeister,

Hello Rmahlmeister,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

In addition to SIW2's suggestion. In Windows Explorer, The Organize Menu/Folder and Search Options. On the General tab, make sure 'Show all Folders' is checked and on the View tab make sure 'Hide empty drives in the Computer folder' is unchecked.
