I am trying to set up a File Server on Windows 2012 R2. There is an AD and a few users.
According to my knownledge, if a share is created (thorugh wizard) with "ABE" enable, only allowed users should see it.
Indeed, all users are able to see every share that I created, even if they have no right to access it.
I would like to prevent some users to list all shares.
How can I do that?

For example, I have this share "secret" with:

path: C:\FILE_SERVER\secret
full control permission to: SYSTEM, CREATOR OWNER, Administrators, richard (a trusted user).

Now I try to list from a W10 workstation share on server, as "antony" user (which should be NOT able to list "secret" share), and I am able to see it.

Thank you
