How do I find all the folders that are shared on Windows Server 2008?

  • You should give your question a more meaningful title. – David Spillett Jun 24 '09 at 16:11

You can open a command shell and type:

net share

  • I also just found out that I could go to Start\Programs\Administrative Tools\Share and Storeage Management for this as well. – Raj More Jun 24 '09 at 16:01

A quick way is to insert


in your start box. This opens the Share and Storage Management Console on Windows Server 2008.

In powershell you can use the following:

gwmi -Class Win32_Share -ComputerName MyServerName | sort name

If you need to know which shared folder corresponds which folder on your system, execute: compmgmt.msc

which shared folder corresponds to system folder
