Thanks in a advance for your help. For some reason, the files and subdirectories inside my "C:\unzipped" directory have disappeared, and when I copy a new file into this directory, it also disappears. But I know the files are still in that directory because when I try to copy the same file into that directory, a message indicates that a file with the same name is already in the directory.
I was able to open one of the many subdirectories inside the C:\unzipped directory by using the File - Open - Recent command in Internet Explorer. I was able to drag this subdirectory into a new directory, and all of the files are intact.
I tried the "Show hidden files and folders" command within the C:\unzipped directory, but nothing changed. I also checked inside the directory using MS
-DOS, and it appeared empty. However I know the files are still in there since I can open some of them using programs that save recently opened files.
This problem is limited to the C:\unzipped directory.
Any thoughts on this problem would be greatly appreciated, as I am totally stumped (and not a computer expert).
Thank you very much.
