I've got a Windows 2008 STD 64bit server that i use for backups. When i create a folder and share it everything looks fine until i run a backup (using robocopy) from another server. The shared folder becomes hidden at some point. I'm logged on as the local administrator with full access to the backed up folders. Then when i check the properties the attributes show Read only and Hidden checked. The read only can be unchecked but the hidden attribute is grayed out...? Does anyone know whats going on here?

P.S. It's a 10TB volume using a GPT partition....

For some reason the system attribute was set. You will have to reset it in same command as the hidden attribute:

attrib -s -h ...

Looks like that did it...I'll see if it switches back to hidden after another robocopy night...:)
