I  have a really weird issue that I can't figure out. I have a folder that I have shared. If I go to the properties of the folder I will get x amount of files, but on the a mapped network drive (with a letter) of the same folder I get more files. Does anyone knows why? I have a screenshot attached that shows the network drive folder on the left and the actual folder on the server.2017-11-28_10-17-42.png
