Can not "see" files on some partitions
Posted on 1997-08-31
I do not know what happend to my OS/2 Warp 4 Installation a few weeks ago. I have my system set up to run several Operating Systems on 8 or 9 partitions of my main drive.
Now, when I go to the OS/2-Drive-Selection-Window, I can select my D and E-Drives (16-Bit File Allocation Table), but I can not access any data on them. There seems to be some filter active, that filters out all files, the error-message is kind of: "No Objects found" or "no object found that match the creteria".
I found some panel that seems to be the filter-setup, and I changed the entries but did not find a way to save the new settings.
Strangely, when I start a DOS-Session in OS/2 I can see and manipulate each and every file on these drives.
OS/2 lives on a second primary C-Drive at the physical end of my 2Gig-ibm-scsi-dors-hd.
I have nearly no knowledge on OS/2, please be extremly detailed. If you solve my problem I will give an A-rating.
The IBM-software-helpline was not helpful with the setup at all, although I have had some great experiences with IBM-service in the hardware-section (ownig several Thinkpads).
PS: Do not try to recommend a reinstallation of the OS, I can solve the problem this way myself. thanks
