I need to find the location of hidden shares on my server in order to make access changes.  For example, if I use the run line to type in \\(servername)\print$, Windows Explorer opens the shared folder.  However, I need to modify permissions on this folder.  How can I find out where it is located?  Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hi ITBanker,

From the command line on the server, just type "Net Share" to get a list of shares.

Alternatively you can use the computer management console (compmgmt.msc) and connect to the server (right-click the "Computer Management" line and choose "Connect to another computer"). The shares are listed under System Tools, Shared Folder, Shares.

HTH,
Wallsy
