I have a document folder that has disappeared from Windows Explorer. Six other folders are there still, but this folder disappeared without a known cause. However I can still find documents in it when I search for files that I know are in that folder They are all there and appear to be in order.

Nothing out of the ordinary happened just before this happened, that I was aware of. I have tried rebooting the computer but that hasn't helped.

Anyone have any suggestions?

It's possible it's attributes got changed to hidden, this is just a guess though...

Info on showing hidden files and folders Here. If it still doesn't show up in explorer, please re-hide the hidden files/folders.
