Hi,  just wondered if it is possible to hide shares from users if they do not have permissions to view rather than just seeing the folder and getting access denied? much the same way netware does


also is there anything inbuilt, (other than auditing) which would aid in the detection of files beeing accessed copied/emailed.?

even blocking the mentioned facilties.

The feature of hiding things that user's don't have access to is probably one of the most requested features I have seen for Windows file servers. It doesn't exist yet.

In more bad news, I am not aware of something that can log to the level you want - the usual rule is that if someone can read something then they can copy it. Even if a file was being legitimately accessed there is nothing to stop me from opening up my web mail client then copying and pasting the text in to a message.

Simon.

You can hide a share all together, only people know the share name can access it. It will not show up using browse.

good point but wanting just the one share really, with all the folders below, but if it becomes vital we may well go that route

You can hide just one share.

You can hide the shared resource from users by typing $ as the last character of the shared resource name (the $ then becomes part of the resource name). Users can map a drive to this shared resource, but they cannot see the shared resource when they browse to it in Windows Explorer, or in My Computer on the remote computer, or when they use the net view command on the remote computer.
