The folder properties indicate that the folder contains a total of 2.3 gigs on content, but the files, which are not hidden, are not displayed. I don't know if there's a hard drive problem since it's just this folder that is giving me a hard time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try renaming the folder, or copying it. Is it a regular folder or is is zipped? Are you getting an error message when you try to open the folder? What happens? Are you using a shortcut to get to the folder or going through Windows Explorer?

i've tried copying it and renaming it but no change occurs. The folder is a regular folder, which i access through windows explorer and I don't receive any error messages.

happyrck, i'll give that a try and post the results a bit later.
