    Hello All,

    I have a 13” Macbook Pro, running Version 10.9.5.

    In finder, when I click on “Documents” the only folder that shows up is, “Microsoft User Data”.

    If I search in spotlight, all of my documents are available and it shows that they are in Documents, but nowhere to be found under Documents in Finder and none of my folders except the aforementioned “Microsoft User Data,” shows up.

    I’m confused and lost on this. Any suggestions?

    Thank y’all very much

    Andy

    When you find them in Spotlight, hold down the command key and click on any one of them. That will open a Finder window to the location. From there, you can go up the directory hierarchy to find out where they are and drag them back into your own Documents folder.
