    Thanks, so it's only the "2016 Pics" folder that can be seen in Command, but not seen in File Explorer - right?

    What this means to me is that "2016 Pics" really does exist, but is presented to File Explorer as a different folder name.

    If you can match what Command sees to what File Explorers sees, you should be left with a mis-match
    Command Explorer
    2013 Pics 2013 Pics
    2014 Pics 2014 Pics
    2015 Pics 2015 Pics
    2016 Pics newPictures

    In the example above, newPictures is the overlay name of "2016 Pics"

    It might be painstaking to match the folders one by one - hopefully there aren't too many or you find a mismatch quickly.

    Once you identify the mis-match, then it's just a matter of figuring out the method of the overlay.
