Windows 10 having problem accessing Windows 7 PC

I just installed Win10 Pro and am trying to transfer files and folders from my old Win7 Pro PC. The problem is, I cannot access any of the drives or folders with the exception of one folder that is actually a sub-directory of another folder that I can't access.

From what I can tell, the share and permissions are identical for both folders. How can it be that I can access a folder inside another folder that I can't access?

I also noticed that several folders which are inside the main folder show up as separate folders in Windows 10 Explorer, including the one folder I have access to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
