Probable the files have the hidden attributes. Open a cmd prompt, goto such a folder and use dir /a command. If you see the files, you should unhide them using attrib command.

In the past week or so I have noticed that my files in windows xp are disappearing. I can find the file if I do a system search, but I can't see them if they are on my desktop or in my documents. Also I found if i rename the folder it will show up for me. I have gone in to my tools and made my hidden files show up, but the files I want won't show up. What should I do?
