I don't upload files very often, but it sounds like what you're doing
Are they image files? By default  image files show up as images
rather than attachments.
Only other thing I can think of is:
1. Uploading a few through the slow method: “[[(attach:) nameofthe.file]]”
2. Check to see that it's really putting the files where you expect.
3. Create new files with the same name and over-write the old ones.
4. Use the wiki to download the files and see if you get the new ones.
That testing would rule out several simple problems. Beyond that, you'll
need someone else's help.
 PmWiki defaults are almost always changeable.
