    Windows 8 Apps not showing Data folder (image attached)


    I use two hard drives, one that has the OS and the other that holds my data.

    However, for some reason, my Data folder on my D drive never shows up in Windows 8 apps, so I can never open anything in them unless it does it from the Desktop file explorer. Major inconvenience!

    I've attached a screenshot so you can see the D drive as shown in File Explorer and all Windows 8 apps.

    Any idea why my Data folder seems to be hiding? I've kind of got by up until now sticking mostly to Windows 7 programmes, but it's beginning to irritate me!

    Thank you! :-)
