Windows 2008 R2 File Server - Not showing folder

I have a end user that has a folder on a windows 2008 R2 server.  She can no longer see that folder.  I am a domain admin and I cannot see that folder when I log into my computer.   When I RDP into the server  as Administrator I CAN see the folder.

The folder has a EVERYONE \ FULL CONTROL permissions .

Any idea's what has happened to this folder?   End User was able to access it within the last couple of weeks..

This folder in question  isn't shared - the main folder that holds this folder is shared.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

In order for her to have been able to deny other users access to that folder, someone has to have told it not to inherit permissions from the parent, shared folder and the danger in that is that almost anything can screw things up.  Logged in as the domain admin, use the advance button on the security tab for the folder to have it inherit permissions from the parent folder and to propagate those permissions to all child folders and files.  Hit apply and it should, depending on the size of the folder, take a while to set the new permissions.
Once that has been done, confirm that Everyone can now see and access the folder.
If she really needs a private folder, it would be far smarter to have it as a folder that is NOT nested inside of another share.
