system folders display in remote web access

SomebodyInGNV 1 Reputation point

Hello. I've reinstalled WSEE and moved share folders to a different drive. When I view Shared Folders from a client computer as a non-administrator user, system folders like sysvol and Folder Redirection are displayed. I found some instructions regarding a fix that involve viewing folder properties in the dashboard and revising sharing properties to suppress folders from Remote Web Access, but that doesn't work, and not all folders are even in the list shown in the dashboard.

How do I edit display of those folders without adversely affecting system functionality?

I'm comfortable using server manager if what I'm supposed to do is clear.

    Hello @SomebodyInGNV

    It is not very clear what you are trying to achieve, but it seems that you want to restrict the access to the domain shared folders such as SYSVOL or Netlogon. This is never a good idea since these folders are vital for the correct domain functioning, specially when it comes to Group Policy, as example.

    The minimum permissions for this shares are:

    Folder permissions:
    System -> Full Control
    Authenticated users -> Read
    Administrators -> Full control

    Share permissions:
    Authenticated Users -> Full Control
    Administrators -> Full Control
    Everyone -> Read

    Hope this helps with your query,
