# client connections in computer management?

I open Compupter management and look at shared folders/shares.  One of the shares folder, show 15 client connections.  I need to know if these are active connections, trans/rec of data is constant or if this is the number of clients connected through logon scripts?

It displays the number of users who are connected to the shared resource, through mapped drives, etc. and have an actual TCP connection currently established to the resource at the moment.

is there ever an instance where open file and or sessions would not have accurate data?
I can't think of any offhand, you can simply refresh the data by right clicking on the "open files" and choosing refresh.  That would give you the most accurate data.
