Misleading "Folder Is Empty"
I am using Vista Ultimate though I guess this applies to all versions of Vista. I have a problem with Windows Explorer. When I hover over (ie miouse cursor over) a folder, the folder size is usually displayed. If the folder contains only hidden files, I get the message "Folder is Empty" . Now and then this has led me to delete folders I thought were empty but which were not. In Tools, Folder Options, View, I have selected "Show Hidden files and Folders", so I do not understand why the hidden files are not picked up by the pop-up description.
