I have found lately that audacity will not recognize files that I have on the
rot of an internal drive when I go to open them.
Here's what happens.
I copy a file to the root of d: which is my 2 tb internal drive on windows 10
and when I go to open and browse to the location, I see all my folders on the
root drive but not the file that I copied there. It doesn't matter what file
type it is, it just doesn't see anything in that location where a single file
or group of files outside of a directory are concerned.
the puzzling thig is that it used to work but I am unaware of any windows
update that would have made such a thing impossible.
Now, I did install something called OldNewExplorer which makes the windows
explorer look and behave more like windows 7 and I suppose that could have been
when the problems began but I honestly can't imagine why this would be related.
I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts? I'm going to uninstall this app and
see if that makes a difference but I'd still be interested in knowing why such
a thing would happen?
Thanks for your thoughts.
