I have a new Server 2008 R2

Copied all the folders for the office users to the new server last night, created the shares and configured a nightly backup using Backup Exec.

Everything was fine when all users logged on using AD log on script. They can all see their folders and access is fine but when i nagivate to the shared folder on the server itself, the shared data folder is missing.

From the parent folder i can see the data 60gigs is still there. I can navigate to it from the command prompt by using "cd user data\share but if i nagivate to G: user data in explorer, the folder is not listed.

This doesn't seem to have affected users and the backups seem to be working but i need to see the folders in explorer.

Any thoughts?

do you have permission to see it?

Yes, i'm part of the administrator group. the domain admins and local admins can create new folders and see them. After some time of sharing, they disappear.
