    which SharePoint edition / version are you using (Foundation, Standard, Enterprise, Online) / service pack / cumulative updates?
    What is you client environment (OS, browser)?
    Can you see all folders in the SharePoint document library through navigating to the lib in the browser?
    Do you have e.g. set unique permissions?
    What authentication does this Sharepoint site use?

    Thanks and KR

    Check to see view used in the document library.  You may have a filter applied to your view.

    Settings|Document Library Settings|Views|Explorer View

    Or you can create a new view that includes everything.
