A real world example: we have an app that has to have the same client
path and server path to the files (including the same directory
structure).  Unfortunately on the server the path has to be to a local
drive so we setup a local drive on a high drive letter, share the whole
drive and on the clients map the share as the same drive letter.

I agree. Access to administrative shares should be restricted to
administrators. There may be situations where one will want to make a
whole partition accessible to his users, but for situations like that
it'd be better to share the drive with a "speaking" name rather than
the
drive letter. And assign appropriate permissions, of course.

[Ramakrishnan B] I wonder, in a file server what situation could warrant
sharing a entire partition; an explanation would add value.


Thanks
Ramki
