Windows 7: Windows NOT seeing files

Windows NOT seeing files

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro this morning. When I did the install I had disconnected my secondary harddrive.

After installing and activating Windows, I then reconnected the secondary drive. The issue I am having is that some folders that have files in them Windows is not seeing the files.

Example: In Windows Explorer

I have one folder that NO files are showing inside, but when I do a properties check it shows 471 files with a total size of 6.67 mb.

When I took possession of the folder, all the file names flashed by.

I can do a search of files that I remember the names for but it does not find any of them.

How do I get Windows to see these files?

Fantastic that worked great.

Don't have a clue why they were hidden to start with.
