    When I go into Start/My Computer/C:/1Dan which is my directory I cannot get a
    complete list of all the sub-directories. It seems the more recent ones that
    I have created are not listed. I can find them when I use various S/W
    (Office, Excel, etc).

    Is there a setting that I need to change or something else I am doing wrong??

    Thanks,

    Why are you accessing / or trying, data from that path? and if that is the
    actual path then you have created a directory named 1Dan.... in the route of
    C: for an unknown reason.
    The win user directories are under Documents & Settings
    Your data, and any data folders are in My Documents (assuming you used
    default settings)

    Perhaps you are referring to *this* directory:

    C:/Documents and Settings\1Dan

    What exactly is in C:/1Dan ?
