Creating new folders are hidden

Specs: Windows Vista
When I make a new folder it comes up as "New Folder (2)”, which means I already have a "New Folder" on that drive...only I can't see it. I also seem to have a folder called "Test" because when I try and make one called "Test" it says I already have one, again I can’t see it. How do I find it. I’ve gone to folder options and said show everything including system files but I still can’t see it. I’ve tried Advanced Search but that comes up with nothing.

It does not mean you have a new folder on the drive. It means you have a new folder in that FOLDER.

Make sure your explorer view has hidden and system files check so you can view them.

Percisely what folder are you trying to make this new folder in?

On my C Drive I have "all hidden and system files checked". It's just when I make a new folder on the C drive that it always comes up as "new folder(2) before I rename it, which means I must have a folder called New Folder somewhere which I can't see. I'm not trying to make a folder in a folder, I'm trying to make a new folder onthe C drive.
