    Mapping to a hidden share on a Windows Server
    I have a couple users who are running MacBooks on our Windows network. They can browse the network just fine and attach to the shares they need except for their Home Directories, which are located in a hidden share on the Windows server (\\Servername\homedirs$\username).....There's got o be a way to map or at least browse to a hidden share from OSx, but I can't find the answer...Any help would be much appreciated!

    I figured it out....I needed to add the "smb" to the connection string in Finder. BUT, if I have two deparate Windows shares in there, I can connect to one, but if I try another, it says "already connected" to this volume. Basically, I have a public share and a hidden "Homedirs" share on the same volume (D) on the server.....I need to be able to connect o both without just blindly connecting to "D$" for the user...
