Folder properties GUI incorrectly showing as shared
Posted on 2014-01-27
I have a very strange issue here.
I have a file server running 2008 R2 accessed using DFS.
All of the subfolders under one of the shared folders is showing that they are shared when you click on properties>sharing, but they aren't.
If you then click on advanced sharing, the share this folder check box is clear. If you check under share and storage management the folders aren't listed as shared. If you check under the lanmanserver\shares in the registry the folders aren't shown there.
Is this a problem with the GUI or is it a problem with NTFS? Also, we have shadow copies enabled on this volume.
I think the folders were migrated from netware a couple of years ago if you think this would have any impact on the issue.
