Yeah you should be able to see that shared folders without anyissue since it is in another server.
One thing you should not is, to create the same list of users and groups in the "about to be formatted" server if any of those users are assigned permissions on those shared folder......

What exactly do you mean with "on another disk"? Is this another drive in the same machine, or a network drive?
Is this server a DC, a member server in a domain, or a stand-alone server?
How are the permissions assigned, to local groups, domain local groups, global groups?

I am not sure if this is what you meant , but I had a server 2003 I had to re-build. I built a new server but I gave it the same SID, this allowed the drives that were on the previous server (same SID) shared/NTFS permissions to carry over.

Thanks to write

yes i forgot to get more details

this is member server ( file server and print server ) is not a domain controller, about the drives i have the information in another disk in the same server, so i think to format the hd that has the os and restar again, and in the other drive has the files and the share folders.

Sounds like retreiving the current SID, then changing the new SID to be this should work.

How are the permissions assigned, to local groups, domain local groups, global groups?
If the permissions are not assigned to local groups (other than the Administrators group), but to domain local or global groups, then there should be no issues after a reinstall. The Administrators (and the System account as well) is a well-known group and has the same SID on all machines, and domain local or global groups are retrieved from the domain (so during the install, you won't be able to resolve the permissions, but once the machine is joined back to the domain, you'll have all the groups back).

using Microsofts Newsid tool will show you the current SID before changing it, just copy it to a notepad.

What oBdA stated above is true, I assumed you had local groups on this particular server and you wanted to maintain them with the new drive. If this is not the case then proceed to simply establish a new trust with the domain (by registereing it).
