So I was going through folders today when I thought I had stumbled upon an empty folder - wrong. It has "contents", just not visible. There is a spinning cog wheel in the bottom right but nothing happens. I searched the forums and found a similar problem but the solution of changing the view style did nothing to help. I have restarted, repaired permissions etc. I don't know if this is related or not, but my trash also will not empty. Thanks! EDIT: It's now back to normal again... I don't know whats going on.
