    On the Left panel under Libraries, right click Rattled and choose Properties what is the Location path?

    Thanks spunk. Attached a screenshot of the properties of the Rattled Library - using the Manage Library button, showing it is: C:\!!!! PFO Data\Common\System\Quarantine\New Folder.

    It is visible in Win10 but C:\!!!! PFO Data\ is not. Is it possible attributes are fankled? I do not know how to see or change attributes.

    Solved! Most likely. Musing about how to get permissions to expose the lost folder in Win10 lead to thinking about attributes which lead to our shed where a 1986 volume of DOS Bible lay mouldering. In an elevated DOS screen running attrib -h -r -s /S /D C:\MyLostFolder*.* took a long time but made all the files missing in Win10 visible.

    There seems some rearrangement has taken place and Libraries are 'odd' but the files are there once again.

    Thank you to contributors for ideas and tuition.
