I have a folder layout like this (simplified):



The two main folders are shared. Is it possible to create a single share that contains both subfolders?


I can't use junctions because the subfolders change a lot. Is there any other way to get this done? Im using Win2003 R2, if there is a solution for 2008 or 2008 R2 i can upgrade...

Hmmm... I don't use DFS a lot but I'm thinking it would do the job. Create a DFS root and add links to all the shares. Then all of the shares should be available via the DFS root. Does that sound right?

Yeah, DFS will do this and no need to upgrade, it works in 2003. – Ward Nov 17 '09 at 15:16
+1 for DFS, this is how I'd solve this – squillman Nov 17 '09 at 15:20
