Mac doesn't see all the files on a Windows 2003 fileserver thru Appletalk

We have a Windows 2003 fileserver with services for Appletalk enabled and functioning properly, the Mac users can log in and work on the fileserver, but we have one problem.
That problem  is that in some directory’s not all files are there when the users are logged in via Appletalk. Users that are using Windows or OS X (thus using SMB) have no problem and all the files are there.
The problem is not in every dir, only in a few. The fileserver hosts about 300GB of data.

What can be the problem?

I had a similar problem and found that when folders were named with numbers or sometimes spaces they would not show up. I was able to just change the names of the folders and everything was okay.

The folders are not named with a lot of spaces or numbers, so I think that is not the problem, but thanks anyway :)

I've found the solution, I copied the whole folder to a different location and than copied the whole folder back again too the old location, and tada, the problem is solved. I don’t know what’s the problem, but I guess this is one of Microsoft’s mystery’s ;)
