Where are Windows 7 Default directories?
Posted on 2011-03-23
I exported an Access query to Excel. The export wizard defaulted to the file
C:\Users\mbartley\Documents\Duplilcate Files on the XDrive.xlsx, which I accepted.
Then I went into Excel to open it, and couldn't find it. Not in the Library, and when I looked at the Directory panel, I could not find a directory C:\Users\mbartley\Documents.
There is a directory c:\Users\mbartley, but it is locked, and I can't look inside it.
I have administrator rights on this machine, so I should be able to open all the directories.
I used the Search box to look for *.xlsx and also Dup*. Neither search string returned the Excel file I was looking for.
I went back to Access to re-export the query, and got an error message that the file already exists, and did I want to over-write it. So it's on my machine, but I sure can't find it!
