My Platform Space is Missing From the UI

At various times, a Platform Space may go missing on the UI but can still be seen on the server's Windows File Explorer.

Please take a look at the steps below to try to retrieve this space.

1. When logged into the UI, go into Settings and use the Reset Cache button.  Only click once. This will scan through all files, folders, permissions and also recalculate space. If the space has not returned to the UI proceed with the next steps.

3. Open File Explorer window and navigate to the StorageGroup and Platform Space that is missing

4. Turn on hidden items to make the ps.pmxignore file visible.
