    I've got a weird problem here

    For some reason my new download folder is not showing the entire contents of the folder. Whenever a file downloads it is not showing in the folder. Limewire is pointing to that folder for the new downloads. Also the folder is only showing up to the letter D and I know I have more than that in the folder.

    WTF is wrong?!?!? :bowdown:

    :rofl: no its not that either. Its fucking confusing the shit out of me!

    I have no idea why after I download something it dosent show up in that folder. I changed the downloads to a new folder and the new ones were going to that folder.

    :wtf:

    Have you got it enabled to show hidden and system files and folders?

    From explorer you can go Tools > Folder Options, go to the View tab, click Reset All Folders and see if that fixes it.

    That got it down to I! but I'm still missing stuff.

    edit: I refreshed the folder and everything went back to the letter D again.

    Need screenshots.

    What are the scrollbars indicating.
    What does Explorer say with regards to how many files are in the folder and how much usage
    Toggle between the views
    What kind of software do you have installed that might be doing crap to that folder and its contents?
