Help. SBS 2003 all files missing in shared drive but can still open using address bar
Posted on 2013-01-09
I have a Windows 2003 SBS Server. Day before yesterday the size of my C drive went from 25GB down to 700mb and today it's back up to 20GB.
Here is the problem.
I have a shared drive that all users save their files to and named the drive P drive. \\servername\companyfiles
This morning about 95% of the files from this share looks to be missing. There were about 200 folders in there and now only a few are left.
Here is the thing. When I go into the Address bar and type in \\servername\companyfiles\name of missing file I'm able to see everything. Looks like the server still has all the files there and they aren't really missing they just aren't showing up in the window.
I've checked the box for "show hidden files and folders" and that didn't do anything.
I tried to do a copy and paste from a backup and paste it to \\servername\companyfiles and it asks if I want to overwrite the file, however I can't see the files/ folders I'm trying to restore. So it looks like they are still sitting there just invisible for some reason.
Please help. Loosing my mind trying to figure this out.
