Are you including the (ex: Music) folder like in the tutorial below?

Library - Include a Folder

Some more questions about libraries. Sorry, just trying to narrow down the issue.
  • Are these folders hidden (faded) on you storage drive when viewed from that location in Windows Explorer?
  • Are all included folders in the library hidden, or just specific included folders?
  • Is it like this in all library folders, or just specific ones?
Yeah, I have added the folders as the tutorial states. I go to the library that I want to add the folder to and click on # of locations and add the folder that way.
  • On my storage drive they are not hidden
  • All included folders in the libraries are not hidden
  • All Top level folders (Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos) are hidden

If these are the ones in the C:\Users\(user-name) folder, then you might see if running the commands for the hidden user folders in steps 22-24 of Option Two in the tutorial below may be able to keep them unhiden for you.
