I have an issue in where one directory on a partition disappeared from Windows Explorer.

When searching I fiind the folder and files under neath. Noticed that owner is Admininitrator.

Try to take ownership but doesn't fix it.

Any ideas how to fix it?

    Did you configured "Show hidden files and folders" in Windows Explorer by going Tools|Folder Options|View ?

    What folder is hidden? Some special named folders are hidden by default.

    That option was default. I changed it to enable , and now I can see that folder. Still, the folder shows fainted.

    How do I unhide the folder?
