I can not just trigger the greyed-out 'Apply to folders' at will, so I can not give you a specific answer; I can only say that it has often irked me that in 'later' versions of Windows, that option is often greyed out, and so I see icons for folders instead of textual 'details' - I can set DETAILS for a specific folder, but cannot generalise that view to 'all'; It was very much opportunism for me to raise this issue as a 'thorn in my side', without it being a CURRENT issue; since you have displayed such a profound knowledge of Windows.

OK.  Next time it happens  give me the Type (from Folder Properties, Customize) and the full path including drive letter.

Six hours after setting the dirty bit and then triggering checkdisk, the screen displayed 'Scanning and repairing Drive C:\ 100% done'. On C:\ there were no tell-tale 'found.###' files, nor any other sign of its overnight labours.

 

As for misbehaviour of THIS PC, it can be there one minute and the next, it is gone; seems utterly random.

 

It's been a long thread and I can not remember if I have told you that the misbehaviour is quite specific to THIS PC; if I open File Explorer in a view that is NOT 'THIS PC'

I CAN access the items which the misbehaviour prevents in THIS PC.

 

***************************************************************

I'll be on the lookout for a greyed-out 'Apply to folders'  box in the Folder Options box to report to you.

I have just come across another odd phenomenon - not on MY computer, but on the PC of someone I help though TeamViewer.

I feel I have reached the limit of my transgressions here in starting new threads on a now obsolete opening post.

But I would like to keep open the channel of communication with YOU - is there a way I can start a new thread, but with YOU ?

You can check the event log for the results from the chkdsk:

Look down where it says: 

Using Event Viewer to Find Chkdsk Results

 

You can start a new thread and just put "for rkinner"  in the title.
