Cannot see C:\ProgramData folder?????

I have show hidden files turned on in FreeCommander (donor version) and do NOT see the C:\ProgramData folder.

Win10 File Explorer DOES show that folder.

Why is that? Is there another switch I have to check to see those types of folder?


I was trying to find C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService folder to delete their cache file according to their TS instructions (see below for those):



Quit malwarebytes from the systemtray.
(right click the Malwarebytes icon in the system tray (down by the clock > quit)

Then navigate to the following folder:

C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService

In there, locate the file HubbleCache and delete it.

(Note: ProgramData is a hidden folder > show hidden files and folders first)

Restart Malwarebytes again.

FreeCommander Settings shown below:

No problem here on Windows 10.
C:\ProgramData is visible if the option for "Show hidden files" is active https://freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/General.html
You can try to activate the option "Show system files" too.
The tree has own option "Show hidden folders" https://freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/S ... ement.html

Thanks. Checked out those links. It was the View/Tree/Show Hidden Folders" that I had to check. Then, I could see that folder. Maybe that check box could have a hint on the View/File/Folder List as to its location?. I had not even been to the "Tree" settings before as the "View File/Folder list" seemed to cover folders also, no?
