By sharing a folder, we can allow network users to access a folder. By creating a network share, we can create a single location to manage shared data used by many users. To create a share, you must be a member of the system’s Administrators group or Power Users group.
Windows Server 2003 has many default administrative shares configured by default. The administrative shares or hidden shares uses the dollar sign ($) at the end of share name. A hidden share will not appear by default when we browse a remote server. You need to use a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) in the form \\servername\sharename$ to access a hidden share. A system’s Administrators, Server Operators, and Backup Operators groups can con
nect to the administrative shares.
