I recently had to reinstall Windows XP so prior to doing so I backed up all my relevant documents etc. I did this using Karens replicator to copy all the contents of the My Documents folder to an external hard drive.
Once I had XP up and running again I copied the My Documents contents back to my PC (on the C drive). I then moved the My Documents folder to a separate partition.
My issue is that now all my files in the My Documents folder are hidden and the same applies with the copy on the external drive.
So I have a couple of questions:
- Does anyone have any idea why these files would suddenly become hidden
- What is the best way to unhide them I've just started doing this but have found I have to open each folder then select all the files, select properties and uncheck the hidden attribute.
Thanks in advance
