    Missing Windows folder in sync

    I'm using Sync Center and Mobile Device Center to sync to my Q9C and it always works just fine, however, I found that it does not show the Windows folder when it syncs. I showing hidden folders and files and just browsing through the directory. I know I have access to the windows folder because I can browse to it in file manager on my Q. Does anyone else have this problem?

    is that setting you talk about, show hidden folders, on your pc or phone. Not that it would matter, you should be able to see it.

    I enabled show hidden folders in Vista. I haven't seen that option on the Q before.

    OP is trying to see the folder from his pc so i doubt if this setting matters, anyway.. for what it's worth Windows directory is a system directory, not a hidden directory..

    Thanks anyway

    I did actually see that the hide folders options were selected so I unchecked them, restarted the phone and even recreated the partnership between vista and the q; still no love. I can get by with accessing the folder from the phone, it's just terribly inconvenient. Thanks for the help though.

    crazy question here, when you sync it, explore it. Do you click on "My Device" first?

    That did it Treefrog

    A simple check in the hide OS files on the computer. I'm still trying to get used to Vista. Thanks a ton!
