This just started while I was organizing files in my E drive ( partition on my C drive for storage ) I had two windows open to the drive inside a png images file, when I got through get every thing the way I wanted and backed back out to the t of the drive all the folder looked empty, showing no sign that there were file inside, whrn I open one of these and all the folders inside are OK, the have the sign that there are files insde them, it's just the main folders that are holding all the rest of the files.
I know this has a simple fix, I just neer had this happen to me before so don't know where to fix it out.

TIA

I have mixed files in all of them, theres folder and open images behind them, I took the open images behind the new images folder and put them in a folder and it fixed the problem, then I took them back out and mixed them with folders and it still works ( who knows ), Nothing surprises me with windows

Will keep this fix in mind if it happens again, I just wonder what caused it to happen this time, I knew it was a simple problem
