I have a folder on Windows Server 2008R2 Enterprise machine which I have shared as - SharedName - Resources
There are two options to share this folder -
I chose 'Advanced Sharing...' because I wanted to give a different Share Name.
I also give 'Read+Change' permission to a particular user say, Niki
Then, I click Ok to save those permission under 'Advanced Sharing...'
Now when I click 'Share...', I don't see 'Niki' user.
- Do I need to add 'Niki' user again if I already gave Shared permission to this user under Advanced option?
- 'Share...' dialogue has 'Read/Write' permissions and
'Advanced Share...' dialogue has 'Read/Change/Full Control' permissions.
How these two sets of permissions relate to each other?
- Is it a good idea to give different shared name than actual folder name.?
I like this but have a feeling that someone looking at this shared name on another server won't have any clue about actual folder name. Any thoughts?
