"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Tasks pane allows you to view and manage the shared folders on Windows SBS 2008. Some tasks in the Tasks pane are only available when a shared folder is selected. The following table details the tasks that are available.

I'm not sure that answers my question.
Exploring SharePoint 2016

Explore SharePoint 2016, the web-based, collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office to provide intranets, secure document management, and collaboration so you can develop your online and offline capabilities.

If you stop sharing a folder it definitely does not get deleted.
The folder can be found at the exact location where you shared it. In my company we have created a folder called shares which contains all the shares used in the company and which are used depending on the OU.
If you "lost" the location of the network share, you should be able to find by searching for it (if you know the original folder name) on the SBS machine or search on the SBS machine for a file that is in the share. After u found that file u can simply open the folder containing the file by right clicking it.

Hope that helps and answers your question.

Nope, stoping shareing will not cause the folder to be deleted.  It will, however, make in unavailable to anyone not logged on to the server directly from either the console or RDC.  Once you have logged on to the server, either at the console or via RDC, it will be where you left it, just not shared.
