|Brock, take care when you are counting files, there can be only one number correct.|
In Explorer, make sure you have checked/unchecked the option where it says to show hidden files, system files, etc...
And, as stated above, when using the DIR command, make sure the he is displaying all types.
Nbrane, isn't this missing then:
DIR /AH /AS
... in order to show hidden and system files ? From the DIR command, it is not really 100% clear what is default action, showing or hiding either Hidden and System files. I guess it is "showing".
Brock, to show the number of files, you need to remove /B again since /B will show only names of files, no info on file numbers and sizes
And note that /S is showing/counting files in subdirs as well. You aren't comparing files in a directory, with the files in a directory and subdirectories ?!
