WAD "Pictures" directory is empty in TCC but not in CMD or Explorer

When I look at my "Pictures" directory/folder in cmd or Explorer, all my expected files are there. When I look at it with TCC (Ver 23.00.30) there is only a desktop.ini file (hidden). I'm running Win7 SP1 x64 in case that matters.

I thought this might have something to do with Windows making directories under the "Users" directory a junction point, but "Pictures" doesn't seem to be one of those.

Here is what I see in cmd:

Code:
c:\Users\burrm>ver

c:\Users\burrm>dir /a:L
Volume in drive C is Windows

I'm hoping that this isn't something more serious than user error.
