Windows 7: PLS Help - Saved Doc not showing under Libraries -> My Documents

PLS Help - Saved Doc not showing under Libraries -> My Documents

I have a word document that I have 'saved' and 'saved as' under 'My Documents'

When I go to Windows Explorer -> Libraries -> My Documents. The Word Doc is not there.

When I go to Windows Explorer C:\Users\[my username]\My Documents , and use the same filter, the Word Doc can be found.

I have verified that I am logged in as that user.

Would anyone know how to fix this or have any suggestions?

Thus far I have tried:
- a group policy update (PC is on a domain) + restart
- R-click 'My Documents' -> properties -> restore defaults

No luck

Do the reverse of what it says in this post:

Music Appearing in Pictures Folder

In other words click documents library and modify included locations.

Or restore libraries to default if you get stuck and didn't modify any other libraries.

Removing then re-adding the My documents folder (under the properties option) resolved the issue

Documents Saved to Flash Drive
This problem is driving me nuts. I will create a document and the click "Save". Word then saves it to a flash drive, instead of to Documents. Then I have to go searching for it and put it in Documents. This is an intermittent problem. Does anyone know what is causing it?

Hi all, As noted in a recent post, I am having issue with formatting my c:\ partition. If I have to, I may just do the install without a format. What gets saved into the windows.old folder? Will it include all my documents, pictures, music, etc? I hope not. If it matters, vista is...
