I have a folder in 2008 server that when I view it via explorer, it doesn't show all the files? But if I use the UNC path to the folder, I see all the files? (experimented with a simple .txt file). Verified that VIEW options were ok, but still different?

Can you take a screenshot and post. Make sure the sizes of the folder are the same.

OK .. before I post shots, here's the scary part. when you look at properties on regular folder, it showed 103,215 files. The same folder via UNC shows 103,334 files? Shouls have been equal, NO?

I see that the folder is missing files but I can't check the paths because you have them blacked out.  Having the shared drive name doesn't give anyone enough infomation to hack you. There is no external data listed.

Are you supplying different credentials for the mapped share than you are when you browse using the UNC path?  If so, some of the files may have security rights assigned to them that are denying the mapped share credentials the right to view the files.

The actual share name did not match the share network path, so when looking at unc and actual drive letter, they didn't show the same data!
