Thought I knew what I was doing when I went to C:\Documents and Settings\Family Documents...
Right clicked the folder, clicked Properties, and checked the 'Hidden' box at the bottom under Attributes.
I expected to be able to see the hidden files.
Now Family Documents is missing (along with all the folders, photos, and documents...)
Any one know where they went?

A search of C: drive gave me this...

C:\Program Files\Support.com\backup\fa\Family.wab

Anybody help?
Thanks

You have set the Hidden attribute to the folder.

Do this : Open any folder. From menu select Tools > Folder options. Select the View tab. Select Show hidden files and folders from the list. Click OK to save the settings.

Now you would be able to see the folder. Remove the Hidden attribute (the same way you have set it).
