    directories not visible in ms dos or windows??

    I created a folder using Window2000 Explorer. However, it disappeared from view. When I go to MS-DOS and type "dir" it doesn't show up either. However, if I type "cd" to the directory, it will change. The data is there. Why doesn't it show with either the "dir" command or the Windows Explorer?

    Sounds like the directory is hidden. If you go to Tools - Folder Options in Windows Explorer and enable the showing of hidden files, does it reappear?

    No, it does not make it reappear. I was just reading about changing attributes directly in DOS. When I typed attrib -s -h -a, the directory appeared.

    You un-hid the directory by doing that. I'm surprised that telling Explorer to show hidden files and folders did not have the same effect. Whichever way you got there...it's working now!
