Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7


Some workstations are unable to see the files on mapped drives


Remove the "Hidden" attribute from the files/folders where it has been set.


The "Hidden" file attribute will make it impossible for users to view the file/folder where the attribute has been set. Some machines can see the files because the Windows Explorer "Show Hidden Files and Folders" setting has been enabled.

Additional Information

Wireshark filter to identify files with "Hidden" attribute:
ncp.att_def32_hidden == 1
