List Windows Shares from the cmd line?

I'm asking for the cmd that will list the share name and the folder path and the description?

I've used 'net view \\servername' and it kicks out the Share name and Type.  I need the folder path and the description too.

Windows Server 2003 SP2

Try NET USE (no parameters). That gives me what I need.

Invoke-Command -ComputerName xxxxx -ScriptBlock { gwmi -q "SELECT * FROM Win32_Share WHERE
 Name != 'ADMIN$' AND Name != 'IPC$'" }"

sub computername at xxxx

But I used powershell, not sure if it will work for you.

You can get from powershell:
Open Powershell cmd by  Start -> Run -> Powershell
Then in powershell window type:
 Get-WmiObject -Class win32_share

Open in new window

You can either
... at the server: net share which shows the shares for that server

... at the client: rmtshare \\servername
Here's one link you can get rmtshare at: Windows 2000 Resource Kit

Hi,

There are many ways to do this. I like the GUI method: type fsmgmt.msc from run or command shell.
All other methods have already been mentioned above :).
