I am having a similar problem with VISTA-x64 and VISTA-x32. I have a maxtor
NAS- shared storage drive, 200gB and a lot of the directories don't show up
in explorer. They do show up from a dos prompt, or if I boot back to
XP-PROx64, or any of 5 other systems running xp-pro and w2k. I check the
firmware in my NAS and it is from Feb of 06. If I boot the system with the 2
VISTAs on it back to xp-pro all the directories are thier. This has stopped
all my VISTA testing, I don't even want to take a chance and write to the NAS
for fear I will blow everyone's files away.
So I am assuming that I have the latest Network OS and I still have the
issue, but ONLY on VISTA.
Thanks for listening.
