Attach folder--no docs showing, but Attach folder properties indicate 355 files, 7 folders. Help pls????

I have 2 company's.  Using Doc Center in both.    Co 1--has Attach folder in its Company file.  In Attach has two folders, both called:  Farm--with two different dates.  Zero files in these two folders showing; however, when I do a rt click on Attach and choose properties, it says there are 355 files and 7 folders in Attach (Hidden files is NOT clicked).  I can see the docs in the Doc Center, but am not confident the docs in doc center are really going to this attach folder since I can's see them in the Attach folder anywhere.

Co. 2--has Attach folder in Company file.  Attach folder has two files:  Inbox and Txn.  Both have documents in them.  Inbox--shows doc name.  Txn shows a numerical labelled file name (ex:  xxxxxxxxx-1406040623)-why are documents going into two sep files? Why are the documents being saved two different ways (ie.  file name in "Inbox" folder and numerical in "Txn" folder?  

Why is there a difference?  Is it best to add doc to Doc Center, then attach to transaction?  It is so much easier to be in the transaction and choose the doc from my master file to link it to my transaction, which should put it into the Attach folder.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
