Windows 7 Folder share does not show all files in the folder

I've recently installed Windows 7 Pro on a workstation.  In one shared folder, there are several folders.  In one of these folder, there are about 5 files, and a couple of other folders.  When I view this shared folder on another workstations (XP and Win 7 H/P) only two of the files show up. I've undone and redone the sharing, no difference.

Anyone know what might be going on?

Did you check the permissions on that folder or those files? I am guessing inheritance is turned off on that folder.

It was a combination of inheritance issues, and an "unknown contact" from a previous share from the previous Windows XP installation.  Thanks.
