Hidden Folders


P

PT

I back up selected files and folders to a portable Iomega USB 250GGB hard
drive, using Iomega backup software "Iomega Automatic Backup Pro" The
software lets you create a backup data set folder into which the desired
files and folders to be backed up are copied into. You can create multiple
backup sets, and I currently have four.

But for some reason, while the older three display and behave normally, the
most recent backup set folder does not appear in My Computer or Windows
Explorer. However, I'm certain the backup folder is present on the drive,
for the following three reasons:

1. When I request a backup to that folder, during the copy process the
Iomega software provides a running list of files being backed up
2. During backup, the external hard drive is in continuous read/write
motion, and finally
3. I used Properties to check the hard drive capacity before and after. It
increased by about 7 GB, the approximate volume of the other backup sets.

So why do three appear, while the fourth is invisible. I've checked to
ensure that folder options display both hidden and system files. Is there
some other way a folder could remain hidden?

Or should I pay Iomega their $25 pound of flesh for tech support?

Maybe I wasn't clear. I've set folder options to display hidden files and
to display operating system files - the missing folder is still hiding.
