Sub folder means a folder in a folder. Just like My Music, My pictures are the sub folder with respect to My documents. The second thing is that there are some hidden folders and file that can be seen in normal view as there is an option for hidden files in MY Computer....>Tools in upper menu bar......>Options....>View and then select "Show My hidden files and folders." All the folders and sub folders will be shown.
1. Normal Configuration (setting) Most of us know how to set the Show Hidden Files from the Windows Explorer but if in case this tweak doesn't work we need to do something more important in the Registry or using Command Prompt. For beginners i also include how to set the Show Hidden Files in the Windows Explorer. Step 1. Open Windows Explorer (eg. My Computer) and click on the Tools Menu as shown in below.
Step 2. Click on the Folder Options, you’ll see a toolbox (as shown below) :
Now click on the View Tab
Step 3. Check (select) the Show Hidden Files and Folders
Step 4. Apply and then OK If this doesn’t workfollow then include the Step 5 Step 5. Scroll down the Folder Options toolbox and uncheck the “Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)”
A warning dialog box will pop up, Click Yes And then Apply – Ok Even after you’re done all these changes and you can't still see the hidden files and folders, then go to next tip: Show Hidden Files and Folders_2
If you have Windows XP, open up any folder, go up to TOOLS, then Click on Folder Options, After that click on the VIEW tab. You should now see where it says Advanced settings, go down and click on " Show Hidden Files And Folders"
For Vista Open up any folder, click on ORGANIZE at the top and scroll down to Folders and Search Options. Once in the Folder options click on the View Tab, you should then see where you can click on " Show Hidden Files and Folders"
I would suggest once you get that folder back, go back into the folder options and click on the Do Not Show Hidden files, because when you show the hidden files you are also showing important system folders.
Hi thanks for your input. I'm still unsure as to the cause but I think this will help...
If you go to Control Panel>Folder Options >View
You will see this listed:
Hide Extensions for known file types.
If that is checked, uncheck it. It is a security question. Often a virus will have a double extension. This way you can spot it right away. If you ever see something like whatever.exe.jpg for example. Do not open it. Scan for viruses
Open My Computer from the desktop or Start Menu. From the Tools menu, choose Folder Options.
Click View tab. In the "Advanced settings" pane under "Hidden files and folders," make sure that the "Show hidden files and folders" option is selected.
Click OK. Navigate to the following location by either typing it into the address bar, copying and pasting it into the address bar, or clicking through the folder hierarchy listed: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\
Right-click the SC Info folder shown and on the shortcut menu, choose Delete.
Restart the computer. Open iTunes and choose Store > Check for available downloads. After your rental finishes downloading, choose Store > Authorize. Enter your account name and password, then click the Authorize button.
The files you are attempting to find may be hidden. You can view hidden files in Windows Explorer by opening My Computer, selecting Tools > Folder Options > View > then select Show Hidden Files and Folders, then select Apply. If this doesn't help, please clarify your problem.
