Windows 7: Windows Explorer Problem

Windows Explorer Problem

I have a problem with Windows Explorer / Network browsing. I have two Windows 7 clients connected to an SBS 2008 server. Both clients are browsing the same shared folder on the server, looking at the same file. One client (and the server) see the latest version of the file created 15 minutes ago, and when opened show the correct contents. The other client sees the previous version ( a week old), and when the file is opened, it gives the old content. I rebooted the client with the same result.
Both clients ping the server OK with a response time <1 ms. How can this happen??

Both clients running fully patched W7. SBS also fully patched.

Have you tried using Msofts synctoy?
Download details: SyncToy 2.1

It might also help to make sure the time/date settings are in sync on those machines.
