0-sized files/directories under automounted NTFS

Dear all


I came across a strange problem:

Under terminal, some NTFS directories shown as empty (contain 0 file) and some files shown as 0-byte. Although everything seems to be normal under Finder, if you share these directories or files, a remote Windows machine cannot access such files/directories.


If you try to access such directories within a Terminal, it works fine, and once they are accessed once under Terminal/Finder, the problem disappears.


What causes such problem? It's really annoying for file sharing with another Windows machine. Initially I thought it's a bug in the SharePoints software.
