Cannot see all folders across network share

I have a laptop with win 7 Home premium 64 bit. it is a share (T with my desktop.

Here is a screenshot of the windows explorer from the laptop. The directory is


Here is the screen shot of Win Explorer on Desktop

note that the folder My Scans2 is missing on the desktop explorer.

interestingly, on the laptop, the CMD window does not display it, either.

I went to the file, opened properties, and guaranteed that it was not hidden.

Any ideas?

(Edited - as I look at the thumbnails, the left TN is from the laptop [My Scans2 is present], the right TN is from the desktop on share [My Scans2 is absent])

ARG This was a system folder that got renamed. So good old Win 7 shows the original name everywhere BUT on the Win Explorer page. Who thought this up?
