folder not visible except via command line
All I wanted to do was copy the contents of a usb drive to a pc hd for a backup. I used the following batch file, so that I didn't have to use Windows GUI which takes ages:
Now, the folder c:\freecom_backup can be browsed via the command line, but simply isn't visable in Windows Explorer. I have set "View Files and Folders" in the tools-->folder options-->view tab to be visible (see attached), so it should be working and visible in Explorer. Also, I was able to set the folder as a shared folder, but it can't be viewed on the network either.
set params=/D /E /C /F /H /K /Y /I
xcopy "%SOURCE%" "%DEST%" %params%
Attached is a photo of proof: the folder can't be seen in Explorer, but can via command prompt. Note that this photo is showing the folder as a mapped folder, as the screen shot was taken from a different computer. Same thing shown on actual computer though!
Any thoughts on why I can't see the folder?
