    I recently bought a laptop and had data transferred from my desktop. I am having a problem with the files/folders/docs. When I search the docs are all there, but they are not there in the folders I had them under when I transferred. For example, I had a folder called Household that contained budget docs, health docs, and other day-to-day items. When I "search" a specific doc I can find it, but the docs are scattered all over and I cannot find the folder, if there even is a folder anymore Same with my music files. They are all there separately but do not appear in Windows Music player. I went into the music player and tried to get the files in through 'organize', but no luck. What am I not understanding here? It was easier in XP. there were tan-colored files in places I could easily access.

    Thanks for responses.

    I had the same problem, that's why I always try to save everything on ''my documents'' folder. Sometimes when I transfer music everything goes directly into the music folder.

    Maybe you'd benefit from using a third party file manager?
