Are your files in folders and sub-folders ? In changing attributes, you have to change the attributeas of sub-folders as well, or opt to have the change affecting all folders. Otherwise, go to Foldrs Options-->Show hidden files and folders.
Ok i canged the my mp3 folder's attributes from read-only to hidden and then back to read-only and i noticed some files missing. I then checked the whole drive and it still has the same amount, so i know it's still there.
then i tried all 3 and it all went. but it's still there, i just can't see it. how can i get it back to normal? Please help!
BTW I run XP Pro.
