HI all,

I have a problem where I can't see some files over a network (running mostly WinXP, couple of Win98 machines). The files are all on XP machine, and even when I view them from that machine via \\office\files rather than c:\share docs\files they are not visible.
Apart from the obvious reasons, it also plays havoc with sync software I am trying out as it trys to copy all of these files all over again, taking up lots of time.

Cheers,

Andrew.

first thing that comes to mind is are the files hidden? In windows explorer go tools / folder options / view / show hidden files and folders.

Another thing could be file permissions (I assume the XP machine was formatted using NTFS)?
