Hide all shared folders other than those that need to be visible

Hi Experts,

This is my 2nd question here and the first was an awesome solution. So trying to put across my issues to you guys.

I have a file server that's windows 2003 and it’s an old box with 100's of shares in them many are for team users where multiple users access the single share. Now as i have 100's of them it becomes very difficult for users to browse through them to find the folder they need.

Is there any free software that i can install on the server and be able to achieve a specific solution?

  • Users should see just the exact folders were they have permissions on.

Thanks in advance

Good to see you back.

Here is a straightforward solution.

Download the application from the Microsoft site

Click the above link and download the application and start install.

Just install it in few simple steps.

And next

You are all done now.

Selection radio button one or two as your needs as the explanation is straightforward.

Just right click on the shares and properties and you will see the new tab > "Access-based Enumeration".

This will help achieve what you need.

You should have windows 2003 SP2 or SP1.

Administrators can still see all shares.

So test it for just a few folders and get the hang of it.

Let me know if this helps.
