Cannot see a particular file on shared drive from a specific PC
Posted on 2012-08-28
I have a really strange situation.
Windows Server 2003 (SBS2003)
Shared folders - Everyone has all permissions
Windows 7 clients
I have one particular Windows 7 PC that cannot see a particular file in a shared folder.
This situation occurs with all users on that PC (Admin and user)
All users can see all files on other clients (both Win 7 and XP)
If I use a XP client and make a copy of the file, the copy will show up on the WIN 7 client, but the original does not.
If I then delete the original file, the copied one still shows on the WIN 7 client.
If I rename the copied file to the original name, then it will disappear from the WIN 7 client.
So it looks like something to do with that particular filename.
Just to confirm - the file shows on all other clients (XP and WIN 7) and all users (as far as I can tell). It is just this one WIN 7 client affected and just one file.
I have restarted the client several times.
