Wondering if there was a way to watermark a shared folder in win2003? When a user opens that shared folder he would see "confidential" as the folder backround.

    You could display an explorer background, but you couldn't do it on a per share basis, only on certain computers.  Probably not what you are looking for, but I do not know of a way to change the background based on which folder, only the entire explorer.exe.

    This can be done using a small utility. See this article:
