    Can't Find Moved Files (Vista Home Prem)

    I set up a couple of new folders for some word docs (ofc 2003) that were on my desktop. I right clicked on the docs and selected move to folder but when I check the folders they are empty and I can't find my docs. Can anyone help?

    Maybe I shouldn't be getting into this one since my Vista installation is so new and may not have the context menus that you do. But when I right-click on a file on my desktop, I don't see a choice for "move to folder." Can you make a similar screenshot to show us what you see on your menu, please?

    Do you remember where in your drive structure you put these folders, i.e. what is the folder name above where they are? What does a search for a doc name say? I wouldn't think they got deleted and it's just gonna take a bit more detective work to come up with their location.

    Al,
    That "move to" right click is part of the WINBALLONS utility.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.

    Got a link by any chance? All I see is stuff about eliminating XP popups.
