    Documents Library - Lost Contents

    Hi all.
    First time over in the 10 Forums, but an old time member of the 7 Forum

    I'm trying to work out a concern today, that's frankly driving me nuts.
    I installed the latest Creators Update a couple of days ago, and noticed this today, so I'm assuming its related ?

    If I open my 'Documents' folder from Library's, it showed no content !
    If I navigate to the folder manually, all content was present as expected.

    I deleted the Documents Library, and in Explorer right clicked on the Documents folder, and selected 'Include In Library', followed by 'Create New Library'.
    Documents then show under Library's again.

    However, its quite a large item with many folders inside.
    When I open the newly created Documents Library, it only displays folders starting from A's, and up to G's, but nothing past that ?

    I simply can't work this out
    If I right click Documents / Properties in the Library view, Restore Defaults is greyed out !
    If I select from the ribbon View / Options / Change, Restore Defaults is available, but not altering the issue.
    I altered the Library Type from Documents to General Items with no change.

    I'm perplexed 'why' I lost the folder contents in the first place, but on reinstating the Documents Library 'why' it will not display folders past G ?

    Any thoughts please ?

    Many thanks,
      My Computer

    Anyone ?

    Just to add, further playing has shown if I delete the library, and add again, when first opened the contents appear for a split second, and then gone again !

    Has to be an answer to this I'm missing ?
