I want to share a folder from an NTFS drive, but when I right-click on any of the folders in Windows Explorer the "Share" option is not present on the menu. Why can I not see this option and how can I make it display? Thanks. I'm probably missing something simple.

This service seems to be installed as standard on Windows2000. When I'm logged on as local Admin I can see this "Share" option, but not when logged onto the domain as restricted user.
You need to be at least a Power User to create shares.
