Files starting with "io" are not showing in a folder

By NetAdminLCDArms ·
I have two servers, both are windows server 2003. Server A is a terminal sever and server B is a file server. While on server A, certain files are not displayed in a shared folder from server B. When the file share is viewed from any computer in our company all of the files are there. But when that same file share is viewed on serer A, any file that starts with "io" is not shown in the folder.

If a file name starts with anything other then "io" then it is seen by server A.

Current permissions set for that file share are
- everyone - full control
And server A has show hidden files turned on.
Also I'm logged on as Domain Admin to server A

Any help would be appreciated.

That is very strange

I assume you have checked the file attributes and ownership?

if you rename a file you can see to something starting with io, does it disappear?

What are these files used for?

strange is right

The files are mainly pdf's. Some are excel

Yep checked the file attributes and ownership.

A file I can see is named "myfile.pdf" If I rename it to "iomyfile.pdf" its gone.
Now if i open that same share on other computer then i can see the file "iomyfile.pdf" It is just on Server A (the terminal server)that files are not showing.

Does the same behavior occur at a command prompt?

Perhaps the GUI thinks these files are hidden?

Yes it does. Also I just tried this with a folder it does the same thing at the GUI and command prompt.

Do you have an AV program running?

Maybe somehow 'io' is detected as a Virus signature and the file is getting quarantined?

Below is a copy of the command prompt window. I did not see the last line before. I think this is part of the problem but not sure what to do with it
