Windows 2003 x64bit storage server file/subfolder not visible in the file share

Some of the the folders in the network share in our main File server (Windows 2003 Storage server R2 SP2 x64bit) is not visible from client computers (Windows XP pro, Windows 7 x32bit or x64bit)

Although users' both security and share permissions to the folders/subfolders are good, but cannot see the subfolders under the share form the client computer.

Try this (I will copy/paste this from my personal procedure for descibed issue)

Provided fix solves the issue with intermittent refresh problems on Windows Server 2008 R2 File Server.

Solution:
In the Advanced Settings of the network card in Device Manager change the following parameters:

IPv4 Checksum offload = Disabled
Large Send offload = Disabled
TCP Checksum offload = Disabled

Once you click OK, a network connection will be inerrupted for 5 seconds.

Install the following patch:

Are any of the folders marked as hidden or system? If so you will either need to modify the folder attributes or you will need to turn the option on the client to "show hidden files and folders" and also "hide protectec operating system files"

No it is visible in some computers and for some users. Not all the users have problem, even those who have problem, they can view it on some of the system. It is random, but when I goodle, I am seeing this is to do with Windows 2003 Storage server. I am not getting the right solution.

We had this issues on Windows Server 2008 R2.
Some of the newly created files or folders were not visible at start, but after some time they appear in the file system.

Do you have the same situation?

It is similar but not completely... Some have no issue at all, but others with the exact securit rights, they cannot see it.
I couldn't conclude it is with the particular client system (as it happinging in Windows XP and 7 on different systems), and happing for different users.
