The program is called ReGet. It is a 32-bit program. Whenever I save a file created by this program (.wrg), that icon has one of those little padlocks on the lower left-hard corner. If I want to open the wrg file again, ReGet can see it and open it. (By default, it saves its files in the same directory as the executible file.) But, to Windows Explorer, it is completely invisible. EXCEPT that it shows up in "Recent Items," strangely enough. If I direct the Properties tab for the shortcut appearing in "Recent Items" to find the wrg file, it cannot. However, I have an FTP program that uses its own file directory explorer independently of Windows Explorer. The FTP program can see the file. But if I direct the FTP program to open the wrg file in Notepad, Notepad cannot find it. If I ftp the wrg file out to a server, then ftp the file back home again, the padlock has broken off of the wrg icon, and the file now becomes visible to Windows Explorer and all the programs. If I override the default and save the wrg file to a subdirectory in Documents, the wrg file has no padlock and is plainly visible. What is going on?
