One user cannot see a particular file

I have a strange situation where one user cannot see a particular Excel file on our shared drive.
This user can see other files in the same directory.  
All other users can see the file.
If I make a copy of the file, then it displays on the users PC.
If I then delete the original file and rename the copy to the original name it disappears from their folder.

Windows SBS 2003
Windows 7 clients

Any ideas?

Best regards

Richard

The off-line settings will be part of the shared folder properties.  

You could try the following on the workstation:
Open Control Panel (Switch to large or small icons)
Open Sync Settings
Select Manage Offline Files
Disable Off-line Files (Reboot)

I am hedging my bets that the off-line cache is corrupted in term of that file.  I could be completely off-base with this solution.  You should re-enable off-line after the reboot.

It might be an issue with off-line folders.  What are the off-line settings for the shared folder?  Does the issue only exist on a single workstation for the user?

Hi Tom
Where are the off-line settings for the shared folder?

Yes this only exists on a particular workstation.  If I log on to my PC as the problem user I can see the file.

If the problem user logs off and on again they still cannot see the file.
