I found the following message in event viewer, how can I solve it.  Actually, this folder was removed and I did not see any share name in My Computer | Manage | Shared Folders | Shares

Event ID 2511
The server service was unable to recreate the share Human Resources because the directory C:\Data\Human Resources
no longer exists.

Event ID 2511
The server service was unable to recreate the share jmold because the directory E:\User Data\Home\jmold no longer exists.

If they aren't appearing in Computer management you can open up regedit and have a look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Shares.  You can delete the entries in there.

Another way is create directory of the same name then after a reboot the sahre will be re-created and you can find it in Computer management or right click directory and remove it.

Event is nothign to worry about of course, just a direcrory that has been deleted without removing share.

Thanks!  I found those share name under the registry and removed them all.  Because the event 2511 will show up everytime after reboot usually, I will monitor later but I assumed it should be alright.

So why only a B grade?

Doesn't cost more to give A you know.

If you change your mind post a q in the community support area

Grading questions is about as touchy a subject as there is among the membership at Experts Exchange, so here's what the Help page has to say:

Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.
B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.
C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.
Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support. It's also true that a "C" is the lowest grade you can give, and the Experts know that -- so use it judiciously.

Only the Moderators and Page Editors have the choice to give a D grade.
