Doesn't matter. Any folder. Open a folder - go to Folder Options > View. See if the option is checked or not. Its status when this loss of the shortcut occurred influences what advice I should give you.
ade the problem turns out to be the client share was not installed so have redone that and the files re appear,the client share has also disapeared off two of the other computers connected so have had to do the same.any idea why this would of happened? ps internet been down since saturday tea time for essential works,sorry for delay
S'okay, no worries. I just figured that you were off sorting it, inbetween all the real-world stuff that interrupts us! LOL.
I haven't much clue as to why the shared folder would dissappear; do you mean that the folder's share status reverted itself, or just the shortcuts/references to it were lost? I'm intrigued by that one; off to do a bit of searching.
thanks for reply ade.h, sorry my previous reply was a bit misleading i stated client share was not intalled what i should have said was client for microsoft network was not installed in the properties of ethenet adapter on the problem pcs but was prior to shared folders going walkabout once reinstalled they appeared soz to mislead you,hope you havent wasted too much time regs moorie
