  • It is very easy to manage shared folders in windows7. You have no need to use additional software. Just follow the instructions. Go to the start menu. Write “computer management” in the search bar. Then right click on computer management & run it as administrator. Then select shared folder from the left menu bar in computer management.
  • Then you will find three submenu “shares” ”sessions” &”open files”. Then go to the “session” menu. Then you can be seen the computers connected with your computer.
  • You can also see the connection time & idle time of that computer with ip addresses. Then go to the “share” menu & you will see the folders you have shared with people. If you double click on any folder that will appear there will be open a box where there is an option named “allow the number of users” to control the number of users.
  • Tick it & put a number. Then press enter. Thus you can control the number of visitors in that shared folder.

Hello,

Download Advanced IP Scanner 2.0 (Free Network Scanning Tool to know the IP addresses of the computers that are copying files from your computer.  http://download1.famatech.com/download/files/ipscan20.exe

  • To control the number of visitors in your shared folder you need to use NET SHARE command. Before controlling the amount of visitors you should get the details of your specific shared folders:
  • Go to the Start Menu, click RUN, input cmd, press ENTER, input NET SHARE (followed by drive directory of desired folder). Share name, Path, Remark, Maximum Users, Users, & Caching should appear if the command is completed correctly.
  • To control the amount of visitors in a shared folder you need to use the NET SHARE command and input the following:
  • NET SHARE sharename=drive:path / REMARK : “My shared folder”  [ / CACHE:Manual |  Automatic  |  No  ]


Sample:NET SHARE MyMusicFolder=c: Music / REMARK: Docs on server ABC” Best!

Hi Jabedperves,

I hope this will help. Open "My Network Places" from the Start Menu or from the left pane of Windows Explorer (under Desktop, below My Documents and My Computer).

  • Open the "Entire Network" item listed in the left pane of My Network Places.
  • Open the "Microsoft Windows Network" item.
  • Next, open the new item that appears showing the computer's workgroup (or domain) name.
  • Finally, click on the new item that appears showing the computer's name.

In the right pane, any non-administrative Windows shares set on this computer will appear. If no items appear, no folders have been set for sharing. Folders shown in this window link to the actual shared folders. Opening any of these shares will reveal the contents of the actual folder.
Note that renaming or deleting files from this linked location is not permitted. Note also that this method reveals the contents but does not reveal the actual location of the shared folders on the hard drive.

1. To find the actual location of file shares on Windows XP or Windows 2000, and also to view administrative shares, open a command prompt.

2. To open a command prompt, click the Start Menu, choose the Accessories option, then choose Command Prompt. Alternatively, click the Start Menu, choose the Run option, then type 'cmd' in the Run window that opens.

3. Type the command 'net share' and press Enter in the command prompt window.

4. The 'net share' command shows the name and location of each shared folder on that computer.

5. Share names that end with a dollar sign ($) are administrative shares.

6. Several administrative shares are created automatically by Windows; these should not be modified.
