I'm sure the files are there under a full name log file or data file.
Did I change a setting or something that I no longer see the file extensions .lgf or .mdf in Explorer folders?

Yes, uncheck the "hide extensions for known file types". It's there in explorer in the folder options.

So the problem is you can't see the file extensions?

Make sure (1) your in detail view and (2) you uncheck "hide extensions for known file types" under tools, folder options.

Thanks guys. Organize dropdown > Folder and Search Options > View tab >Yes, uncheck the "hide extensions for known file types"
I'm using RDP so the 'Computer' file explorer has a different look to it than Windows Explorer.
How did it ever get changed?
Oh well.
You're the best.
