I haven't seen this one before.
I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 box that was setup by a previous admin. I'm setting up a new share on it and having a really strange problem. When I give my users 'List' permissions to a folder under the share, then any folder that they don't have permissions to disappears on their client.
Upper level share at \\server\share
Department folders under that share at \\server\share\departments
Say there is are two folders at the departments level, HR and Finance.
If a user has List permissions at the share level and then Write permissions to HR, then they can see HR. If they don't have any permissions to Finance, then the folder doesn't show up in the Windows Explorer window at all.
What would make that folder disappear even though they have List permissions at the share level?
