    Missing directories in 2 popular file managers

    Both FreeCommanderXE and MultiCommander fail to show the c:\Program Files (X86) directory. Furthermore, FreeCommanderXE fails to show Users\<username>\Appdata and it's subdirectories.

    The following screenshot shows this in 3 overlapping windows; Windows Explorer is the top windows that shows all the "missing" directories are really there. And, BTW, my system runs fine. But why do those file managers not show stuff that is really there?

    Yes, I did set both programs to show both Hidden and Systems files.

    XNView shows the (x86) directory. But it does not show AppData.

    It has in the past (8.1), as I recalled accessing XNView within AppData to review/retrieve desktop background pictures.

    Hi, I don't have those file managers, but can confirm XYplorer shows c:\Program Files (X86).

    I's been a long time since I last used FreeCommander but I think there was a separate setting for showing hidden folders in folder tree view. Because that is what's on your screenshot. Try browsing to the Program Files (x86) folder without using the folder tree, I bet it's possible to do so, I just does not show up in the folder tree.
