I've got a quirky little issue on my XP Home SP3 machine that's been going on for a couple of years now. I've been working around it easily enough when necessary, but I thought I might as well ask the awesome BC people and see if there's an answer.
I'm unable to view hidden files even though Folder Options is set to view them. Files/Folders such as C:/Documents and Settings/user/Application Data
I know the folder is there because I can manually type in the entire folder name if I need access to it (such as when setting up my backups to backup my browser profile or emails from my email client). I can manually navigate to the file/folder by typing in the entire name of it, but I can't see it when navigating using Windows.
Any ideas why my hidden folders stay hidden even though the "show hidden files" option is checked in Folder Options?
What's more irrational--a guy who believes in a God he cannot see or a guy who is offended by a God he doesn't believe in?
