I have tried to figure this out, but no luck. I do a clone of my machine drive as a backup. Do this a couple of times per month. Well, finally need to recover a file from the clone. It is located under "users/mylogin/documents". Using the normal windows explorer, it will not show me this directory. I do have ownership of the users and all subs on the clone. Very frustrating. Finally figured out that I can drop to a system command level and use "dos" copy command and retrieve the file.
Why does windows not show these directories? Is it because they are the same names as the mounted drive? If so, why do "dos" commands work fine? Other programs such as "treesize" are able to show these directories also.

Any help appreciated....
