'Orphans' folder in Source Documents?

Hi all,

Could someone please help in clarifying what's this Orphans folder in the Source Documents folder (Screenshot below)? If I try to maximize the folder, I can see no files/folders inside it.

I checked in my Source Documents paths too. There is no such folder available. Could you please help in removing that unwanted thing?

HI,

You would find task under there that the QVW was deleted before the Task was removed.

Re: 'Orphans' folder in Source Documents?

Hi Bill,

I was assuming that too. But now nothing is available under that Orphans folder, neither any tasks nor any QVW files (you can see the screenshot, after maximizing nothing is seen). So the source QVW might have been deleted/changed before removing the tasks.

Now question is, how to remove the Orphans folder, without tracing the missing QVW/Tasks?

Regards!!!

Hi,

You can't remove it. It is there by default.
