Windows explorer files not showing or can't be found

Last Modified: 2018-03-10

I have a folder with over one million files on a server.
There are a files that I know are there because if I type the entire location with filename it opens up. But if I search for the file,  windows can't find it.
The files are just regular pdf or office files.
If I sort the folder by filename, those files do not show up.

Thanks for the help
