I am on top of it all now.I had to specify *show hidden folders*
Mind you I find I always need to do one folder at a time .In fact I have oi go through a whole routine of creating a new folder in OE,giving it a file, shutting down OE,copying and pasting the relevant dbx folder and reopening OE to start on a subsequent folder.As I don't do it very often I put up with it.I think I tried your clean wipe method at first and it didn't work for me .Sounds a lot simpler!
