Folder shows in DOS but not Explorer
Posted on 2013-05-29
So recently, I was installing a new computer for finance. When I went to map out the user's shares, I noted that one of the folders was not showing up when I put in \\servername and browsed to it via explorer.
What is odd is that on the server itself if I do a DOS search, "dir finance-a*. /s" the folder shows up under the appropriate path (c:\userdata\foldername).
Also, if I manually add in a share and put in the remote name as \\servername\foldername it maps perfectly fine.
The folder is not hidden. Dir /ah reveals no hidden folders. chkdsk also looks ok. I already made a copy of the folder and its contents just in case, however anyone know how to get this share folder to display again?
