Shared Folder not visible on Terminal Server

Someone came in and installed an Accounts Package at one of my clients. He created a share callled: Accounts$ for people to access the data on. I have a Terminal Server installed on this network. The ordinary users cannot see this share from within the Terminal Server, although they can see it directly from their workstations. I can see this share from within the Terminal Server. I assume it's my administrative privileges that permit this.

Presumably this behaviour is by design. I was just curious why.

Check the security settings on the share.

Yes I did all that before posting. I thought there was some relevance that this share has a $ sign on the end of it's name. That's the only thing which is different from other shares. Like I said, everyone can access this share from their workstations. However, it's invisible if I try to browse to it from the terminal Server.

Hi Ian,
If he did his share at root level ($) it might not work through TS. It's not really AD integrated.
Just create a new share with the wizard and as long as you installed your TS the SBS way you will be OK. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sbs/2003/deploy/adstrmsr.mspx
