Items in Favorites on WE sidebar disappeared


Honorable Member
all the items that were under Favorites in the sidebar of Windows Explorer have disappeared.

The link to the Download folder was there - the actual folder is still under users.

what happened?

If you right click favorites, does the Restore Favorite Links help any?

I don't suppose you just collapsed the tree...
