I have a DFS root on a 2003/2008 mixed domain with 9 replicated targets and about 20 gigabytes of data.  I would like to hide this share so that it is not visible when doing AD searches.  Is it possible to rename the share with a $ without having to delete the whole DFS share and create a whole new one?  I prefer to do this without having to replicate 20 gigabytes of data to 8 sites.

Well I need users to be able to read and write to this folder.  I am not ready to block list access to everyone.

I have taken the opportunity of a long weekend to delete my DFS root and create a new hidden DFS root so this topic is no longer relevant.  I am therefore closing this without any real resolution
