Windows 2008 Server share not showing all the files

I have a share on my 2008 file server that has 61 folders in it. when I do a UNC path from my Windows 7 machine it only shows 21 folders out of the 61 that's there. We have DFS replication setup on this server and another. Could that be whats causing this issue?

Check if you have no ABE (Access Based Enumeration) enabled on share(s). Then you can see only those files/folders to which you have at least Read permission

When I run the dfsutil property ABE \\namespace I get ABE is not supported and System Error - the request in not supported. Could it be because its under a Domain-bases in Windows 2000 Server mode?

Then it would not be enabled. They are 2000 mode right now.

Anyone else have any ideas, when I try \\server\share on my Windows 7 machine I see only 21 folders out of the 67 that are suppose to be there but when I log into a Windows XP machine and try I see all 67 folders. Just don't understand what could of changed. This started happening yesterday.

So far what I have seen is I only see the files and folders that I have access too. How do I change this?
