I'm using 64 bit Windows 7 w/service pack 1. Within the last two months, whenever I move files (it started as photos, but now it can be any file) the files are somehow being marked as hidden. Under 'Folder Options' I have to turn on the option to see hidden files, then untick the 'Hidden' box under file attributes on the affected file. It seems that the files that this happens to are random. For example, I can move a group of photos from the 'Pictures' library folder to another folder on the hand drive, and only some of those pictures will wind up being hidden after moved.
While this may seem like a minor annoyance, I am ready to perform a system recovery to fix it, but I figured I ought to ask the pros first before I make work for myself.
I hope I explained myself clearly, and thanks for any help anyone can offer.
