directory not visible in DOS command window
Posted on 2012-12-29
I have a directory c:\Users\Owner\Documents\My DVDs. I can see this directory using Windows Explorer. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. If I open a DOS command window and cd to c:\Users\Owner\Documents\ and enter "dir" then I do not see the "My DVDs" directory listed in the results. If I enter "dir /AD" then I see the "My DVDs" directory listed in the results. Why is the "My DVDs" directory not listed when I enter "dir?"
Note that I looked at the permissions for the My DVDs folder. The permissions are the same as all the other directories as far as I can tell. Also, this is not a link to another folder. This is a normal directory. I have spoken with others who have experienced the same issue with other directories.
