We have a share on Windows Server 2008 R2. As a Domain User you can map the share but when you click on any folder in the share it's empty! However if you are also in the Admin group you can see the files. This started after the most recent Microsoft updaye to Server 2008 R2. the Domain User group has all permissions for the folders/files.

make sure you have inheritable permissions turned on for that share.
