Missing folders in Server 2008 R2 after Raid controller update.
Posted on 2013-01-09
I have a very strange issue going on. I am not sure if this is the cause, but we applied a RAID controller update on the server and scheduled it to reboot. The following day people said they could not connect to their shares. When I log onto the server, I cannot see the shared folders. It's like they disappeared. strange thing is I can view the files/folders if I actually type in the path of the folder. So it's like they are still on the server, but it does not show through "computer" and clicking on the drive. It is a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 enterprise. 12Gb ram and plenty of hard drive space. it is a DC and the only one in the domain. the folders are not hidden. I am at a loss of what to check.
