    Hidden Files not Visible


    After the latest update I can no longer see hidden files.

    Updated to: V10.0.19042 Build 1942

    When I try to select "View Hidden Files" the checkbox shows a tick which then disappears.

    Going via settings and setting the "Show hidden files, folders and drives" accepts the setting, but when I view it again it is unset.

    I am running as Admin.

    Third part File Managers show hidden files correctly and work fine.

    Seems like a bug in the system.

    :)

    Program to Find all Hidden Files?

    Also, I have tried checking into "super hidden" value in the registry and it is set at "1" so that means that they are visible I think? The files are still showing up as empty but taking up roughly 3-5 gigs a pieces for a few of them like there is still something running in the background or hiding them even further than hidden files.

    Searching hidden files/folders

    This is what I do:
    • In explorer, browse to C:/Username
    • Start a search there containing a folder name I know is in C:/Username/Appdata/Local
    • The folder does not appear in search

    Hidden files and folders are marked to be visible everywhere.
    It seems like recursive search doesn't descend into hidden files/folders, because when I browse to Appdata and search there, I find it.

    Any way to change this behaviorr?
