Windows 7: Folder not listed

28 Dec 2009   #1

Folder not listed

When looking in Computer/c:, some user folders are not listed in the c: directory.

Folder/files are there but can not be found when browsing, for example, to attach to an email.

System directories (e.g., Program Files) are listed.

Is there a reason some folders are not listed? Is there a way to get them listed?

Unless theeir is a malfunction in your OS, hidden files are meant to stay that way. You should not have any personal documents hidden.

every track is listed twice?
All my tracks seem to show up twice, also very short clips (like ringtones) seem to have been found and entered too. Two questions - is there a menu that has a 'delete identical tracks' or doublers and is there a way to tell it not to list any tracks less than say 2 minutes? Thanks
