  • Default shares

    Windows 2008 Server.

    It's noted that C:\Users is by default shared when installing Windows Server 2008.

    C:\Users - Shared to Authenticated Users with Full Control

    I did share a sub-folder within the Documents folder, and in fact it is more evident when I select right click > Share:

    C:\Users\Administrators\Error Dumps - Shared to Everyone as Contributor; Administrator as Owner

    Within my test environment I don't mind, but I think I'd be concerned about this in a live environment.

    I noticed this as well... And it seems as if everything below it (ie \administrator and their documents) is shared as well...

    I would also be interested in help here...
