Folder problem Urgent 500 points

Really strange problem

Folder on our Network.

EG Folder A can be seen by all users

Folder AA to ZZ under Folder A cant not be any user accept admin and 1 other user. The folder appear to be greyed out like it has been cut.

All the folders and files the 1 user and admin can access. The files and folders under AA - ZZ are not greyed they are normal.

I have reset all permission etc etc

Totally stuck

I maybe assuming this one user that say the greyed out folder structure has cut the entire directory and it has relased some how i am guessing

This person has logged off and on.

Agian still lost

Sounds like the folders are hidden and most users are not set to see hidden files.  Unhide the files by changing the hidden attribute (file and folder properties.

Done that sorry

no luck
Michael PfisterCommented:
Try to run chkdsk <drive> /f on the machine where the shared folder resides. Replace drive with the drive letter where the shared folder resides.
You probably have to reboot for the chkdsk to run, chkdsk will tell you if its neccessary.

Hope it helps,

Check the owner of the folders.  That sometimes messes up permissions.  Atleast from my experience.
