OK I have put this out to the other techs for suggestions :)

But for the meantime could you recreate the situation. I.e. copy across the same picture to the iPad as before, allow it to complete and synch
Then safely remove the iPad and see if the subfolders are now accessible

Could there be a desktop.ini file in the subfolder that is trying to open some malware that you have removed?

OK the easiest way to check those out is to use a batch file

Batch File

    EXIT
    
    
  • Go to File > Save As... and save it to your Desktop named fix.bat. Make sure you change the Save as type to All Files (*.*)
  • Locate fix.bat on your Desktop and right click then select Run as administrator

Additionally could you set hidden files to visible

Go Control Panel > Folder Options > View
Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders"
OK out


Then go to one of the subfolders
Is there a file called desktop.ini
If so could you right click and select Edit
Then copy/paste the contents of that file here

Hi,

Apologies for the delay. Had a few other things to do.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I've Ran it but after 15 mins got a pop-up saying something along the lines of "Windows cannot find Junctionpoints.txt. Please try again"

Folder options updated.

Just checked desktop after saying all that, and it still managed to create one.. :confused:

OK this is an experience in tracking it down in the system

Could you download and run Shellexe view

When the programme opens click on the company heading and all those that are not related to MS should be at the top
Could you take a screenshot to include all of them please
