Access Based Enumeration is not working


On my Remote Web Access of my server there is a lot of shared folders, but not all the users have the same rights of accessing these folders.

There are some users I don't want them to see the names of the shared folders that they don't have rights to access it.

I enabled Access Based Enumeration on the shared folders, but still all the users can see all the shared folders. even if they have full denied access to the folder.

Thanks in advance.

But you are talking about shared folders or folders inside a share?

If about shared folders then user will see them always. For that you need to consider using DFS and then you will be able to modify DFL links permissions to hide them from users.

If about folders inside share then probably permissions are set up incorectly, because ABE works fine when you have enabled it on a share. All folder inside it to which user has no rights is invisible.

Yes, they will always see share(s). ABE will hide all folders/files within a share to which users has no permissions.
By default share is shared to Everyone:Full Controll and that's why users see it.

They don't have permissions to open these folders, they can see it but they cant access it. I want to prevent them from seeing these folders.
