I am working on a new MS365 SharePoint and OneDrive setup and the on-premise manager decided to copy all of the files from the companies Dropbox account into her OneDrive for Business account using File Explorer on a Windows 10 machine.  Now the only person that can see the files is the manager that copied them.  The other 2 users only see the folders.  All 3 users have "Owner" permission set for the SharePoint group.  On her local computer and the MS365 portal, she can see all of the files and they are syncing perfect.  Also, the files say they are checked out when she views them from SharePoint site.
