If file share folder permission are left at the default Everyone - Full Control -- can general network users access the folder in any way?  Users would not have local access to the servers.  I'm asking in reference to a previously configured server.  Second, questions is what is recommended NTFS permission when planning to create a file share?

Thanks.

I do it also so.

After you should only work with  NTFS permission's. Then they can't access the share. If you need to hide the share folder's you can use $ .

Sharing a folder on your server will allow any user tosee the share when they go to the network and click on the server name.

The real control is in the security tab.  You can share to everyone but you should not set the security to everyone - just those authenticated users who should have access.

I'm fairly familiar with NTFS and Sharing generally - so I don't need generally info actually.  My question is very specific -- "if" many folders already have the default - Everyone - Full Control -- no local access -- is there any way general network users can access the data if they do not also have Share permissions?  If the answer is yes, in what way specifically?  I'm not really needing advice on setting up future shares at this time. Understanding that Everyone- Full Control (NTFS) might not be recommended - what are ramifications?
Thanks.

even though you've granted full access, to everyone they still cannot access the file because you still need to provide a username and password

Domain users would all have passwords - what is the effect when they each enter their correct password -- can they access?  Thanks.

Without share permissions, they get nowhere.
By the way the default share ACL is set to is Everyone - Read. Not Full.
