New domain-joined computer. Fresh installation of Windows 10. Network file shares mounted via login script similar to this:
net use :X \server\share

This particular share has several folders from a bunch of users, but the user only sees the one with her name on it.
And even within that folder, only some of the files that are there.

User B sees:

User A
\folder1
\folder2
file1
file2
User B
\folder3
\folder4
file3
file4
file5
User C
etc

whereas User A only sees
User A
\folder2
file1

None of the other folders, and not even all the folders within hers.

    Hi,
    Thanks for sharing here!
    It may caused by the ABE set on the folder.
    Access-based enumeration hides files and folders that users do not have permissions to access.
    When the Access-Based Enumeration has been enabled for the shared folder , and users don't have read permission for some folders within the shared resource, then the folders can't be seen .
    For more information , you can refer to :

    Best Regards,
