Why can't I see all my files in a network drive?
Posted on 2008-10-07
Weird one this. I have two machines both running Win XP Pro Sp3. I have mapped a network drive on one machine to a folder on the other. This works in the normal way except that I can only see *some* of the files. I am absolutely certain that I am looking at the right folder, and that the folder I am looking at does contain the files I expect to be there (indeed, know *are* there when I look at the folder on the other machine).
I am well-used to simple networking tasks like sharing folders and have never seen this problem before. Is it a common problem with a simple explanation and fix? (Pressing F5 in Win Explorer doesn't work.) If not, let me know and I'll post all the gory details.
