There will be a menu at the top of the Windows Explorer window. Click the Tools menu and select Folder Options. Select the View tab and place a dot next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Click the Apply and OK buttons.<br /> <br /> You can also access this folder from the SmartSound options window. Select the Folders tab and click the "Click Here to Browse this Folder" link.<br /> <br /> If you do not keep your sound files in the default folder, make sure that you also back-up the folder that contains your sound files.
