one workstation shows a network share differently than other workstations

Windows 7 workgroup, 10 computers, all running windows 7 pro 32. password protected sharing. Share from one computer shows the same files and folders on eight computers but on computer 9, the share shows only a portion of the shared files and folders. Computer 9 shows all other shares correctly. This problem starting while mapping drives for backup. System restore does not help. Please help.

Have you verified the permissions on the files?

Permissions at NTFS level sounds possible, especially if files shift around as they often inherit the permissions of where they came from - is this using user/password on each machine matching on on the central one?  

Other than that, files marked as hidden and hidden files not displayed in Explorer maybe?  Do the files show in cmd prompt using dir /a \\server\share

Also map the drive with a different user/password that works on the other PC, e.g. net use x: \\server\share /user:username password

Thanks for your response. Yes I have verified permissions. Have not tried to access with command prompt but will try today.
