I have made all the folders visible. But the main point is the files inside
the old window's folders seem have to been deleted. I have used a software to
check the files. They exist but a lot of them have been destroyed. Even I
recover the files, such as pictures, they can't be opened properly. For
instance, most of the pictures I took by me DC can't be shown. I have just
transfer the files from my DC to my notebook computer for one week only. I
really want to recover the pictures as they can't be re-taken. >.<
