Sharing and hiding directories. How do you hide directories?

Any share you do want user to see just share it with the $ symbol at the endof the share name (no spaces)
ie share$

You can also hide folder by going to the property of the folder and there will be a tick box in the general tab called hidden.
This will make the folder invisable to the user as long as the option in folder " do not show hidden files and folders " is enabled

Share permissions only take effect over a network, but markoid's last sentance above will also affect users actually physically at the pc/server that we're talking about, but it's pretty likely that a user will turn off the Do Not Show Hidden Files option.

NTFS permissions are much tighter, and affect users wherever they are.   Generally a better way, and if you're going to use them, then don't bother wish share permissions at all, they only get in the way!

If you need some more advice, let us have an example of what you're trying to achieve, and we'll help further.
