I had to do a reinstall of a Win 7 32bit pro OS for a user, but before I did, I moved her data to my machine, did the reinstall on her and then moved her data to her profile.

I logged in as her, and verified that her "my docs" and favorites were there and that I can access them. However, all of the data icons are transparent (folders on her desktop and the actual data in her mydocs).

Most of it is pictures and movies and I can access them, but everything is clear. I did notice that even the favorites are transparent and they do not show in the browser (IE) even though the link is in fact in the Favorites directory in her profile.

I looked at the scurity settings and it looks correct...no issues.

What am I missing?

As you can see, the bottom 3 folders are transparent. The only complication that I can see to this so far is that the favorites links look the same way in the favorites directory and when I open IE, I do not see them in the favorites drop down.

From the screen shot (see attached), I have the security properties opened for the top folder "Chris Brown". I am logged in as nmccarthy, who has full rights to this folder.Attached File  scrnsht.png   82.53KB   7 downloads

Right click on each one and go to properties of the folder and see if they are hidden.

Yep, that was it.

Not sure how they became hidden just by doing a file transfer.
