Hello!

How to find information about domain user shares using ADSI Edit? Where exactly it sits?

One of the user's Win7 machine syncronizarion sees old share which was removed some time ago. So I think share still exists in AD and only way to find it is ADSI Edit.

thank you

Active directory does not keep information about shares on the client side. Their must be something on the Client machine. can you check the profile.

Please read this article to clear the client side cache (CSC).

Also, note:

Make sure that files are synchronized before you add this registry entry. Otherwise, unsynchronized changes will be lost.

I had to run this on a few machines that were upset I moved the location of their documents share.
