> the file name is SONAR X3 Studio

In the screenshot you posted, that is the folder name. And the Open dialog is looking for files of type "All Cakewalk" in that folder. What is the actual file name and file type that you are looking for? And is it really in that folder/subfolders? Regards, Joe

As Joe said above.

What you are showing us is a folder. and that should be easy enough to navigate to.
But you are looking for a file yes? for example example.doc would be the file i was looking for and it is a MS Word file.

Are you able to give us further details.?

Yes, sorry for the confusion.  I will try to explain.  When I installed SONAR some of their folders ended up in different places on my computer.  If I create a project, it stores the data in one of those folders okay.  Now, when I try to retrieve that data by clicking on File > Open, it opens the folder you are looking at and not the one which has the data I created so my thinking is to physically locate the folder you are looking at on the screen shot and put the folder that has the data I created in it so that when I click on file > open, I can access my data.  I know it must be confusing but I don't know how else to explain it.

I'm new to Windows 7 so I don't know why I can't find it.  I never had that problem with XP.  I have found some folders under "my documents", "program files 32", program files 64", and other places but I have yet to find this particular folder so I don't know what to do.

What is the name of the folder where it stores the data? If you don't know, here's an idea. Many programs in W7 store their data in AppData. This is usually:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming

You can find out where it is by running this in a command prompt:

echo %appdata%

Navigate to that folder in Windows Explorer (or whatever file manager you use, or even in the SONAR Open dialog) — of course, <username> is whatever your user name is, such as John. Then look under Roaming for something that looks as if it belongs to SONAR, such SONAR X3 Studio Data. Regards, Joe

oh i think i see.

the folder you show in the screenshot you want to locate..?

I guess simplest way is when you get that open screen like in your screenshot
- click the up arrow near the top right on the folder icon
- write the new folder name down
- click the up arrow again
- write the folder name

repeat this process until it navigates to somewhere easy to locate and then just follow the folders you wrote down in reverse order..

Okay, so far no progress.  I went to run and typed this in:
echo %appdata% and got the message you see below.  Then I went to the search box on my computer and typed:
C:\users\owner\AppData\Roaming and the search went on forever and finally asked me if I wanted to add to index which I did so it has been doing that for quite a while and I don't know if it will produce any results.  Will advise later.

You don't type <echo %appdata%> in the Run box. You type it in a Command Prompt. Two easy ways to get the Command Prompt are: (1) type cmd in the Run box or (2) Start Menu>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. It will be a black window with a C:\Users\username> prompt where you can enter commands.

Also, don't type <C:\users\owner\AppData\Roaming> in the Search box. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to it. When you get there in Windows Explorer, look at the subfolders under it...the one you want probably begins with SONIC. Regards, Joe
