I can traverse to a folder I cannot see and see its contents yet, if I traverse up one level I still can't see the actual folder

I can no longer see a folder under my share. It was there this morning and now it's not.  However, if I traverse the network for the folder it's there.  Locally if I go to E: and CD to top directory and do dir I don't see folder. I then cd to folder I can't see and then do dir I see the contents of the folder. Very, very, strange.  I ran sfc /scannow, rebooted, removed/added share/ntfs permissions and no change.

Thanks. I found the issue about 5 minutes after I posted it. The folder somehow from a copy had the system and hidden bits added. I attrib'd the file removed the flags and it came back.  Couldn't see past the "why is this happening" and after that couldn't find how to withdraw question.  Thanks again
