I created a new folder yesterday.  Copied some files to it.  

Today it is no longer visible.

you can access it via the path

I have checked all the permissions on the parent folder.  It is shared for "everyone" and the security is set to "everyone" full control.

If you type in the path and then in a blank space open "properties" the Hidden box is greyed out.

How do I unhide it?

I opened Treesize from another server and the folder is visible in Treesize.   It is also visible from any other server via Network.   Just not the server it is on.

What if you try with cmd as admin:

attrib -h "folder path" /s /d

Open in new window

Make sure you don't have a "\" at the end of the folder path.
