Unable to view all folders in shared drive unless local admin access provided to machine

Last Modified: 2020-01-23
I have domain users that randomly login to various workstations within their company.   When they login to windows the profile setups and all the mappings are setup, however when they open one of the shared drives the script maps they normally can only see partial folders within that drive.   If they are given local admin access to the machine reboot and then reopen the shared drive the script maps all the folders appear and are accessible.   Any idea how to fix this?
