On a Win2k3 network, how can I hide a shared folder from users and Win98 PC's? I can set access rights but the folder is still visible when logged in as a user.

When you create the share put a $ at the end of it and it wont show up.

Like if you wanted to share out c:\windows\temp you would create the name of the share as "Temp$" and then it would be hidden from people browsing on that server.
