Windows 7 mapped drive not displaying correct infomration

Hello Experts, I have Windows 7 Pro as a workgroup server with several Win7 Pro clients and seveal Windows XP clients.  I have one Win7Pro workstation that was showing the correct mapping and all of a sudden the share drives are not showing the correct information.

There is a directory in the mapped drive that does not show up.  One mapped drive is no longer accessable.  All other workstations work fine.

I have disconnected and remapped with no resolution.

Any ideas?

Assuming the drives on which the shares are located are NTFS, check for NTFS security permissions differences between folders abc / def / ghi vs xyz - it could be caused by ACL-based directory enumeration feature.
How you trying to map the network drive?

Through explorer by mapping network drive.  I also tried via command prompt.   It was working correctly in the past.

can you access the share location via it's UNC path? If not, you may need to take a look at permissions on the drive or check if any password changes have occurred. You can use the net user username command to check for Password last set and Password expires fields.

Ok, on the client machine (win7pro) I use the user name user1 with password user1 and workgroup ABC.  

On server machine (win7pro) same workgroup, same user id and password.  

I log onto client and I can map all the drives.  Drive M shows directoires abc, def, ghi but does NOT show xyz.  On other clients XP and 7 they show xyz, etc..   Drive S allows me to map it but does NOT allow any access.

When I logon to the server with user1 I can map all drives with the expected results showing all directoires and able to map drive S along with access.

Of course user1, user2 and directory names are examples.  

user id's and password does not expire and all appears good...see below

Withing the shared folder on the "server". I went into Properties, Security, Advanced, and changed clicked on "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and applied this, then it worked.
