Automatically Sharing users C:\ - logon script?

USERS: Windows XP Pro

How do I automatically share each users C:\ on the network for 'Domain Admin' user access only.

I don't know whether it's related to the Group Policy or not some sort of VB script added to the logon script. I can't seem to find any documentation on it.

Your help is much appreciated.

    Windows already does that for you: administrative shares (<Driveletter>$, Admin$) will automatically be created, and are, as the name indicates, only accessible for administrators.
    In other words: you should be able to access the clients through \\client\c$ etc.; admin$ will be the shared Windows folder (so admin$ will take you to C:\WinNT on a default Windows 2000 install, and to C:\Windows on XP).

    when you join a pc to a domain, it should turn off simple file sharing which will make c drive shared as c$ automatically


    this admin share is accessible to domain adminsistrators and local admins of the machine.

    C drive is by default shared as C$  but it's shared for all members in the local administrators group on the client So I don't think that yo can only  be shared for only domain admins without granting permission for any other admins
