Can't attach files in Outlook 2007

Good Morning,

Since a few days ago I can't attach files in my Outlook 2007.
Only can attach files if they are at my Desktop.
In all other cases7folders (inclusive My Documents and it's subfolders), when I try to attach a file it opens a pop-up window saying:
"It wasn't possible to locate the file (filename.extension)"
Note that the message above is a translation, since I use the Portuguese version, so the sense is that but, in Outlook english version, some word may not correspond exactly.

Can someone give some tip on how to solve this problem?
Thank you very much for your help.
Luis J.
