RE: MS Windows Hidden Shares

When you say monitor, what do you mean?

You can use the built-in Computer Management console on the file server
(it's in Administrative Tools), assuming you're using a version of
Windows greater than or equal to 2000.  

When you're in the Computer Management console, go to System
Tools>Shared Folders>Shares.  This will let you see every share, hidden
or visible, on the server, in the right pane.  Also, it will show their
path on the server's local drive, the share type, and the number of
clients currently using the share.

You can also use this to adjust share and NTFS security for each share,
publish them to AD, and set Offline Sync options for each.  Does this
answer your question?

Anyone know of a tool to monitor Microsoft's hidden shares and drives
($share (Admin$, c$, ipc$ ))?
