    I am using win xp sp3. I just put a new hard drive. I re-install o/s and
    reinstalled docs& settings from a external hard drive. I am trying to use
    macrium and make a bart pe disk. All of my files are hidden. IWhen i download
    something to my documents if i go directly to my documents i can see them. If
    i go into windows explorer they are not visable. How can I make them not
    hidden? I went into folders and clicked show hidden folders.
    Thank you, Phil

    Firstly, have you looked at the properties of some file or folder,
    to see if they do indeed have the "hidden" attribute (right click on
    a file or folder name, left click on "properties")? Or are
    you deducing that they are hidden because you can't see them?

    Then, if they really do have the "hidden" attribute, have you tried
    turning that attribute off, again in "properties"?

    Finally, when you "go direct" to My Documents, how are you
    viewing them except through Windows Explorer?

    Your description lacks some essential detail...

    I would like to know ;

    What drives are listed in "My Computer" ?

    In the "Explorer", "My Documents" folder, right-click any empty area
    and choose "Properties" - Is the "hidden" attribute box checkmarked ?

    Press the "Win key" + "R" together - the "Run" box appears - type in :
    diskmgmt.msc and click [ok] What volumes (drives) are listed in "Disk
    Management" ?

    Type : cmd.exe into the "Run" box - At the Command Prompt type :
    dir c:/ ...and then; dir d:/ dir e:/ etc., etc.,....which
    drives are present.?


    There is a registry setting that can hide selected drives. You can make
    sure this setting is not hiding any drives by opening "Regedit.exe" and
    deleting the following value [and *only* this value] (or setting it to 0
    [zero]) :

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDrives"=-

    *N.B. There's also a similar-named value under this key :
    "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" which has nothing to do with showing / hiding drives
    in Explorer.

    ===

    I would, with honesty, describe myself as an "enthusiast", as I know most
    regular users of this group are twice as knowledgeable as me.

    However, it took me a while before even I learnt the most important thing
    in diagnosing computer problems : - to include as much detail in your
    explanation as possible! You may not know what any of it means, but
    someone will, plus, as you and I don't know what's important and what
    isn't, you should include EVERYTHING (time allowing).

    Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :)

    If I click on my docs from the start menu i can see all my downloads, when i
    go into explorer, on the left side (folder side) they are not showing. But
    they are showing on the right side. But i can not access them through
    explorer when trying to attch the files to build a pebuilder disc.

    hidden box is not checked off
    drives-drive 1 is c: & d: (partitioned). drive 2 is g:. Drives d&g are
    totally empty as i have not put anything on them yet.

    did cmd.exe c shows 2 files 6 dir 214,123,130,880 bytes free.
    it was a 500gig hard drive partitioned in half.

    d: & g: say no files found.
    I set the hkey-current user value to 0

    I am STILL a bit "hazy" as to exactly what your problem actually is...

    As far as I can tell, it's that you while you can "see" the drive in
    Explorer, when you are "browsing for files" to create your PE builder disk,
    there are certain folders you know are there - but do not show up - Is that
    right ??

    From what you have already said, my advice would be to go into ;

    "Control Panel" - "Folder Options" - "View" (tab)

    ....and set "Hidden files and folders" to "Show hidden files and folders",
    plus, un-check the box marked "Hide protected operating system files
    (recommended)" below it.

    That may do the trick. But, as I said in my last post, all I can go on is
    what you've written in yours - and I could easily have mis-interpreted it!!

    So, if I have got it wrong, please re-post and correct me as to what the
    "crux" is of your problem...

    that is exactly what the problem is. I tried the show hidden o/s files also
    along with show hidden files and folders. No luck.

    Could you do me a favour ?

    Open Explorer *inside* one of these folders that won't show up when you try
    and browse for it in a program like "PEbuilder" - you said you could do
    that (I think).

    Then press the "Prnt Scrn" button and paste the result into MS Paint - then
    save it.

    Finally, either if you can attach it or paste the picture into a post - I
    will be able to see it (some others may not, depends on how they view
    posts). Or, post it (free to use) on http://twitpic.com/ and then quote
    the picture's url here...

    If none of the above is possible (or, even if you can) also, quote the
    exact pathnames of the problem folders - it's quite likely that there is
    some common denominator that will give us a clue what is happening here.

    Sorry, it's my fault if it wasn't clear, when you send your next post to
    this group - past the actual picture itself underneath the text of your
    reply.

    If you tried that, and it resulted in only the path to the image being
    sent, consider posting it on the free website http://twitpic.com

    ==

    Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :)

    What you say "is the link" is NOT!

    It is probably the link to where the image resides on you own PC! (i.e.
    the local path to the file that Twitpic or similar asked you for in order
    to upload it).

    If, indeed, you even uploaded your picture to the web, I can hardly view it
    while it's still on your PC can I?

    What I need is the URL that I can click on to "see" the picture you posted
    to Twitpic, or a similar photo-sharing website.

    Go to Twitpic.com, find your image you posted to it, then copy the
    internet address of the page it's on and then quote that here.

    Example : http://twitpic.com/2kwloa

    ==

    Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :)
