Re: Access Sharing folder

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.

For instance a fileserver for a (small) workgroup, where all members are
working on just one share. It would be rather pointless to share a
single folder inside the root directory instead of the root directory
