I saved several of my documents on a flash USB preparing to have a backup for my files and folders.  I printed out a report of the flashdrive using Tree Size and all seemed well, but when I went to open flash drive some of the documents have mysteriously had their syntax changed to computer language.

Hi waynf :)

Can you explain what you mean by "computer language" ? Can you write down two or three folder name examples here ?

It seems to be something like Webdings, but not exactly, mostly symbols which I havent been able to duplicate using my keyboard.

Upon a more careful inspection, these folders seem to have been renamed as hidden folders.

Are some of these folders indeed hidden/system folders or not ?
