[Solved] Folder created via DFS Replication on Windows Server Disappear

Problem: Document folder created using DFS replication process on Windows Server 2008 disappear suddenly. Replicated folders are no longer visible from the server or through the admin share.

Solution: Unhide folder with ATTRIB command

attrib -r -h -s "G:\folder_name"


Microsoft Technet: DFS folders are hidden when viewing locally on server, or via admin share.
