Windows 10: Network drive is hiding folders

    Network drive is hiding folders

    I'm transferring stuff from my wife's old computer to her new one. (She inherited her old computer from me several years ago, so I'm still a user on it).

    Mapped a drive to Users (\\ComputerName)(Z: ), On it are Me, Default, Default.migrated, Her and desktop.ini, nothing else. On the computer C:\Users has 2 additional folders: DefaultAppPool and Public.

    Clicking on her username folder on drive Z: has several folders and files one would expect, and a couple of missing folders: AppData in particular. Opening my username also has missing files and folders but it does have the AppData folder.

    I'm using a thumb drive to get the files I need but I'm kinda curious why there is a difference.

    Nothing is hiding. Just the Security permissions are screwed up. Try GrantPerms to see if it will fix things. You can keep the Farbar tools on a USB stick. GrantPerms Download
