    Directory system not showing properly


    Hi

    I restored my computer this past weekend and have noticed something odd that I have never seen after a restore. I started moving files and folders back from my back ups and put my websites folder back into MY DOCUMENTS where I keep them stored and they I went to FTP some site files up to my website but filezilla but not showing the right files/folders inside MY DOCUMENTS.

    This is what files and folders I see inside MY DOCUMENTS when I view it in filezilla

    • MY PHOTO
    • MY MUSIC
    • MY VIDEOS
    So I wrote in their forums about this and after some checking I found some other interesting issues around this. They had me pull up the directory listing in a command prompt for MY DOCUMENTS and this is what I see from the command prompt screen

    Now if I open Windows Explorer and click on DOCUMENTS in the left hand panel this is what I get

    NOTE I have covered over a few personal files in this so there are some additional files in here as well as the folders. That is if I click on DOCUMENTS on the left side as you can see highlighted.

    Now if I instead goto

    C:\Users\scott\Documents this is what I get

    NOTE AGAIN in this case nothing is hidden as there is showing nothing in this last screen shot nothing has been hidden for privacy reasons.

    So firstly why am I getting different results in all 3 as they should be identical.

    Secondly how do I fix this?

    Note I have also tried a different FTP program and that one pulls up the proper files and folders.

    As for filezilla I have tried to reinstall and no good still calls up the 3 folders indicated at the start no files in the documents folder just those 3 folders (Unsure of those have contents.)

    :)

    Directory Size Utility

    First of all nice utility, Mindweaver!
    Second of all, it's so nice to see that this section ain't dead.

    I have a few questions/suggestions, maybe you'd want to see ...
    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that?
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs)
    • maybe you also add export list to excel?
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too?
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories?
