    Win10 folder not displaying files that are there (confirmed witsaveas)


    Saved files from Rhino 5 in my current folder, (3dm, igs & stl), went to email to send copies of the igs & stl files to my 3D printer. Hmm... they aren't there (nothing more recent than 5/8/18), yet when I saveas in Rhino, they are there and I was able to drag a copy into the email.

    I tried a reboot, no luck. I tried deleting the files in these folders:

    %AppData%\Microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations
    %AppData%\Microsoft\windows\recent\customdestinations
    No luck! Still nothing since 5/8/18 in that folder. I tried copying (Ctrl a) the files in the problem folder to a new folder, same result. Now saving the subject files to a new folder. OK, if I save them to a new folder, I can see them in explorer. So, I do have a work around and I haven't lost a bunch of work, but I can't figure out what's going on.

    Now for the

    really weird; When I copied one of the files from the new folder to the problem folder, it worked. The file now shows up in explorer.

    See the attached images for illustration of the issue.

    BTW, deleting all of the files in the folders is something you should approach with informed care! Not only did it not help, it also removed all pinned and recent files for all applications. A real PITA!

    I'll admit that I'm lost and I'm not a newbie, I was using PCs, long before Windows appeared.

    I have added the file count column to my folder in File Explorer. However, the actual file count is not displaying.

    Hi Loren,

    few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • When you say, "actual file count is not displaying" is this issue specific to any folder or happening with all folders?
    • Have you installed any third party anti-virus on your system?
    Meanwhile, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if this helps.

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Click on View from navigation pane and choose Detail pane.

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure

    Files folders and storage

    Hi Peter,

    We need more information to be bale to help you better with this issue. Are you facing any issues when saving the word documents or when composing any documents?

    If the issue is with saving documents, where are you trying to save them and what is the error message displayed?

    I would suggest you to check if the users folder is displayed as "read only'. Open File Explorer, click on the driver where windows is installed, and open the users folder. Right click on the users folder, and then check in the general tab, if it is shown
    as 'read only'. If yes, I would suggest you to try these steps and check if the issue persists:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are

      located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child

      object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click

      Ok.
