    I've always used hidden files / filders to, yeah hide stuff.

    Folders like .secret etc.

    I've always used Astro to find, look at and move around theese files.

    All of a sudden I can't see them anymore! (The option in Astro to see hidden files is checked...).

    I Downloades ES just to see if the problem is in Astro, but same thing in there!!

    So, what has happened, and why?
    How can I fix it?

    Your issue might be specific to the directory your files are kept in.

    In ASTRO, go to the directory the hidden files are stored in > View > Set Directory Options > and check 'Show Hidden Files'. If it's already checked, try unchecking it, then go back to the directory, then back to Directory Option's to check it again to see if that nudges things.

    Did not help, though i found the option "Reset all Directories to default preferences"
    And that worked :)

    Thanxs!
