Windows Server File Sharing Issues.

I have been banging my head one the wall at work for the last couple of weeks. I am having a problem with a file server showing different files to different users.

So say if User 1 goes to \\fileserver\data the user can see 5 files. If User 2 goes to same address they may see one or 2 files. Then User 3 can see all of the files.

We are running Server 2012 any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Are they in the same group?

That would be my first thought.

Check Share Permissions, then check Security Permissions

Make sure all three users are set to same level in Sharing Permisions
Next, make sure all three users are in the same user group listed under Security Permissions, or that all three are listed as individuals and have same security permissions.
