"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.

ok , and for share like hidden share i mean how i can access all drives as windows if i am domain admin and need to access the mac machines as business needs
Open finder
From menu select Go -> connect to server,
You can connect to every windows share in that way.
To connect from windows to macos share, you need:

1. From macos, System Preferences, sharing, check File Sharing, add folder and permissions, click options, check smb sharing.
2. From Windows, open Explorer, or My computer and type \\server\macosshare

Best regards

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

If you also want to create a "hidden" share on a mac, just create a share name with a dollar ($) sign at the end of it.  Like all "hidden" items, you can see them and enumerate them if you know the commands.  They're only "hidden" from the average user.  You can also do this on Windows.  Those "hidden" administrative shares are just enabled by default, but you can also delete them or rename them.  You don't have to name them c$, that's just the default share name.

On windows, you can view them with the following command on the Command Prompt.
net view \\computername /all

From a Mac Terminal command line:
smbutil view //username@computername
It will prompt you for a password.  You can see the exact names you can connect to.
