    Exclamation Mapping Windows Server $ hidden shares
    Need help accessing Windows 2008 server via SMB
    I have two users who are not able to map hidden $ files shares on a Windows Server 2008 file server.

    Error rec'd 'the folder can't be opened because you don't have permission'

    What's strange is that they were able to map these hidden shares via Go--> Connect to Server with no problems during the past 3 months, then one day this started occurring.


    No permissions were changed on the file server, nor were any updates to the server itself.

    Any thoughts?

    That may be so, but have you reviewed the Share Permissions and the Security Permissions of the directories anyway?

    Don't forget the Share Permissions.
