If only that were the only issue. I am also unable to navigate the structure; folder appear empty when they're not. Another issue I've had when I create a new task the task appears both against the document in the correct location and against the same document in the <Orphans> - but is actually the same task and said task refuses to reload because it says it cannot find the doc.... Quite a mess.
If you know the file name that the task was built on it is easy. In the source document folder just add a qvw with the old name. The task will move from orphan back to the task list and then delete it. Once you done that you can delete the qvw.
You should never delete or rename a qvw that has task assigned to it. Always delete the task first.

You're preaching to the Choir. But it's really corrupted - I have <Orphans> folders with no contents so I have no idea how to work out what was in there. I have other folders that I know have contents that show as empty, even though I know they're not. Its a bigger problem than just fixing orphaned tasks. Thanks
