S2008R2 File Shares

Recommended Posts


Does anyone have a guide or a link with step by step instructions on how to set up file shares on S2008R2? I want to set up personal and family drives so I can mothball my WHS v1 as it is getting very old.

run "fsmgmt.msc".


This lets you create, and view the shares on the system directly.



If you want to follow in the WHS style (WHS2011, specifically) set the Share permissions to "everyone", and let it fall back on NTFS permissions for authentication. 

Just create matching accounts on the system, or use the Windows Credential Manager on the client systems to authenticate specific accounts (in the case of Microsoft Accounts in Windows 8+)
