Unable to see a directory

On my site, I blocked access to a directory for "others" in other words, I set the access code to 750. I am the owner of the site and logged on with the username and password of the owner, so there should be no restriction of any kind to access that folder.

However, the folder is not listed anymore in the parent folder, I can access the folder bij typing its path, but I need it visible in the parent folder, otherwise I can't change its credentials.

Other clients, don't have this problem.

Re: Unable to see a directory

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP). A log file from the "other clients" would be useful too. Make sure you mention a name of the folder to look for.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

I logged on using WinSCP: See picture winscp.jpg where directory 2007 is not listed.
I logged on using Windows explorer: See picture Windows.jpg correctly showing 2007.

ZIP file contains:
Picture Window.jpg
Picture winscp.jpg
text file Session.log

Don't you have Show inaccessible directories disabled?
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_pref_panels_remote

No, i did not. IMHO the directory was not "inaccessible" because I could go to it directly and being the owner I simply should see it.

However, yes! This solves my problem. Thank for your great support!
