User library not showing - Ableton Live 10

Hello

since a few days ago, I am not able to see the contents of my user library, it just shows 'Presets' and 'Max4Live'.

I also have another link on 'Places' to other folders inside my user library and they do work normally.

What is happening? It maybe should be a bug, because it has been working normally until a few days ago...

Is there a way to force update library?

For Live 9 there was an equivalent problem, which could solved by:
{username)/Library/Application Support/Ableton/Live 9.0.2/Database

and remove the "files.db" file from it (recommend to not trashing it right away, only after the core library is successfully rebuilt)

In another post they say (never tested myself)
Go to your Windows "Temp" directory and delete the "index-args.txt" file. I was just instructed to try this by Ableton and it fixed the problem. When I looked at the timestamp of the file, it was dated March of 2013 which was right around the time I installed the beta version of Live 9. Might be connected to that.

C:\Windows\TEMP\index-args.txt

A new "index-args.txt" file will be created after you launch Live 9

But only for 9 not for 10, i also personally didn't have this problem since 10
