Is it possible to set things up so if a user does not have permission to a directory, then it does not appear at all... as opposed to an access error popping up?

I presume you mean shared folders on a windows environment.

The only way I know of is to add a $ sign in the share name (for example, I you had a \\server\share, you would login to server, and set up the share as \\server\share$). This way, it doesn't show up when browsing the network.

It's ok, there's a feature called access based enumeration that does it or not giving them list folder contents permission to the share

Thanks anyway

Oh, list folder contents!

Ok, then, glad you sorted it out. If my comment was helpful, though, please give me some points.

TIA

Some useful information from naomelixes but not related to hidden shares based on permissions.
