Accessing Deault Admin Share

Q: Accessing Deault Admin Share

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum but it looks like a great place.

I was wondering if anyone had found a solution to accessing the default admin shares (c$, d$, etc) on a vista machine over the network.

I've tried the solution mentioned here: Default Admin Share C$

But it didn't fix anything.

I can access other non-admin shares on the computer but can't access any of the admin shares. I'd rather not have to create more shares, but obviously that is a solution.

Thanks in advance.
John

Preferred Solution: Accessing Deault Admin Share

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There is a user, Dad, with admin privileges on a Windows 7 machine (this is me).

There are other users, kid1 and kid2, with no admin privileges (my kids ;-) )

I want to let kid1 and kid2 access the contents of a directory in my userspace C:\Users\Dad\ . In fact it's not at the top level, let's say it's C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud\photos (because it is). I want to let kid1 have read/write access and kid2 read only access.

I navigated my way to C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud and then right-clicked on photos, clicked on properties, clicked on the sharing tab, and did what looked like the sensible thing (gave the kids the required access).

I then logged in as kid2 and attempted to find my way to C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud\photos. I got there -- but on the way I saw far too much -- kid2 can see a complete list of the names of all files and directories in D:\Users\Dad (not ideal) and also names of all files and directories in C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud (which is not acceptable, because that is my entire life in the cloud).

Is this expected behaviour when sharing directories in Windows? If not, what did I do wrong?

If so then this is no good and I guess I need a workaround. The problem is that I am not at all sure that I can move the directory, because it part of a cloud storage service (like Dropbox, but a different company) and as far as I know that directory ...\ownCloud\photos (the one I want to share with my kids) must be a subdirectory of ...\ownCloud (the one that I really don't want my kids ...

A:Admin wants to share a directory with non-admin users

NTFS Folder Permissions

I'm thinking if you create a symbolic link in C:\Users\Public you may be able to let the kids go directly to the shared folder. Perhaps then you can deny Traverse permission to block the parent folder. But I haven't done it myself.

Stoik Joker,who has the NTFS permissions page in the above link, is also a regular poster on DonationCoder.com. You may be able to ask for clarifications there. And of course someone with SysAdmin type experience may chime in here.

If you succeed using external info please post the solution.

Hi all,

I know in Windows XP that the C$ shares is used for administrative purpose.
Is there any way to access files & folders via the default C$ share?

Let say, Windows XP already has default C$ share.
I dont want to create another share name just use all those default share resources.
How do I do that?
I have administrator level for the network.

Big thanks!

I have a PC running Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 7). I also have a network disk connected to the Apple Airport base station. The disk is formatted as SMB share and the Airport handles it without any problems. The disk is accessible by any other computer I have (2 Mac laptops and 2 iPads). I was able to access the disk from PC but recently I started getting BSOD every time I try to read or write on that disk. I still can access it in safe mode with networking. The message is SYSTEM_SERVICES_EXCEPTION. As it is normal for Microsoft there are no explanations. If anybody has any info about this I'd appreciate. Thank you in advance.

I have a new Windows 10 Home computer and I've selected a folder and shared it. I've added Everyone to the Share Permissions list with Full Control.


I've selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the Advance Sharing Center.


When I try to access the share with a Windows 7 laptop in the home it connects right away without a prompt for credentials. When I try to access the share from another Windows 10 device (Surface) there is a prompt for credentials and I am unable to access the shared folder. There are no common account names between machines on my home network.

On the Windows 10 machine which is trying to connect I have run Net use * /DELETE and removed all Windows Credentials using the Credentials Manager then rebooted both machines a few times. Still though the Windows 7 machine can access the share with no credentials and the Windows 10 machine can't access it at all.

My goal is to get the share working for the Windows 10 machine as it works for the Windows 7. Full access, no prompt for credentials. I've workaround steps that will provide access so that type of information isn't needed.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and any help would be most appreciated.

I've got this working although I'm not entirely certain as to why. The Windows 10 machine that was trying to connect had been logged on to with a Microsoft account which was created on purchase. I created a new local account on that machine and then tried accessing the share with complete success. I'm sure there is some kind of reason for this behavior but I am unable to provided it.

Hey everyone,

Hoping to get some help here.

So we a share drive that is located on computer A. 5 other computers all share and access that folder. There are no restrictions on anybody. The 5th computer that I just set up is having problems though. When I connected to the network via wifi, I found the shared folder. I opened the share folder and was asked to enter the user name and password. (username and password from the computer the share drive is located on.) I typed it in, and now I can see everything on the share drive. However I am not able to create new files, open - edit - save any files, create new folders. I can't figure out what I am missing here, any advice?

One note I'll make, this new 5th computer was purchased from the UK. Everything else is from USA. Could there be any problems because of this?

Thanks.

Just a quick edit, it says that "you need permission to perform this action" when I try to create a folder or add a file in the share drive.

Hello

My Windows 7 machine runs in the subnet 192.168.1.x (actual IP 192.168.1.33) and there is a Linux machine with windows share (smb or Samba) on a different subnet 192.168.2.x (actual IP 192.168.2.5). There is a router inbetween of course.

Before they were on the same subnet and I could easily see the Linux machine when using Windows Explorer and clicking on Network. Now, I can't see it anymore.

Any help and explanation on how this stuff works would be great !

Thank Windows community !

PS: The router works perfectly as I can acccess the printer (192.168.1.80) from my Linux machine (192.168.2.5).

A:accessing windows share on different subnet

What kind of router are you using?

You'll probably need to set up a static route on the router from the 192.168.1.x subnet to the 192.168.2.x subnet. From the Windows PC, can you ping anything on the 192.168.2.x network?

Afternoon all,

I run an Ubuntu box as a SAMBA server, sharing my media collection. (recently upgraded to Ununtu 9.10)

I have configured the server for WOL, so that it automatically goes into an S3 state when there is no network activity and can be woken from this by sending a magic packet from any of my client machines.

What I'd like to achieve is the automatic sending of a magic packet whenever I try to open any media on the server using my HTPC (mediaportal frontend running on Win7 Pro). I currently have it set up so that I can just run a batch file to send the packet before trying to access the media, however this means having to minimise MP and execute a batch file manually before going back into MP and opening the media. I'd like to automate this in some way, so that the batch file is automatically executed (or the packet send is initiated in some other way) whenever the system tries to access any files on the SAMBA share (mapped as a network drive).

I'm sure that it will be possible, but my brain really isn't engaging today...think that half bottle of Southern Comfort last night may have something to do with it, lol.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Marc

Here's a weird one for you experts.

Background: I have an XP pro x32 machine on wireless with shared folders, a 7 Ultimate x64 machine (fresh install) on wireless, and Linksys Wireless/wired router (I'll get the model number later, can't remember). I've had the shares on xp set up for a long time and never had an issue with them on XP or Vista machines. The two machines are on the same router, same subnet, same workgroup (home), individually assigned IPs, and can access the outside fine. 7 does not have a "share group" set up.

Issue: Whenever I access a shared folder from the 7 machine it connects fine until I start to transfer files. It will make it anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of minutes before the wireless connections on both machines are dropped. The connection problems only happen when copying shared files; I can browse shared folders or internet all I want.

I've been through the How-to-share tutorials but no change. Any ideas what to try next?

Side note that may or may not have any bearing: I had been having an issue where the wireless adapter didn't exist (device manager or anywhere else) after coming back from sleep. That required me to reboot to see it again. I fixed it by disabling the save power feature on the driver and disabling sleep mode.

Hi,

I have a laptop (with win 7 home premium) connected wirelessly to the router. I have a server connected (wired) with some shared folders on it.

Now, when I try to open the networkshare on my laptop (when I'm connected wireless to the network), it won't work 3/4 of the times I try. But to let it work, I just do a ping to the IP of the server and when I try again the networkshare will open. Very strange.

When I'm connected to the network with a wired connection, the networkshare will always open up directly.

Is something wrong with my wireless connection? I have an excellent signal and installed the latest drivers for the network card.

My network is setup as followed:

Wireless router -> switch (downstairs) -> switch (upstairs)
My laptop is wirelessly connected to the router. The server is connected to the switch that's upstairs.

Hope I explained it well.

Thanks,
Mathew

I can always ping the win2k machine from a cmd prompt and get a good response. I can sometimes access the shared items however other times a get a box asking for a user/password. When I input what I know to be the pw, it says bad user name pw.

Here is what really perplexes me. When I logoff of the win7 machine and log right back on, I can access the win2k machine without any problem. This lasts for a while and then reverts to the login problem.

One other item. When I logoff of the win7 machine then log back in, the view of the win2k share is changed from "List" to tiles. I can change it back without problems however the next time I do this, it is back to tiles.

As the account for the workstation had no encrypted or protected files on the server, I just went and reset the password to make sure it hadnt gotten changed some how. This however did not fix the issue. The computer is able to access the internet and see that the server indeed exists on the network, but for what ever reason is not able to access the share any longer.

A:admin$ share

Usually any share with a $ on it is a default admin share and is
limited to the local computers admin acount.
You probably need to change them to standard shares by unsharing
it and clicking apply,then share it again and apply.
That should change the share to one without the $ limitation.

Hi there, I have setup a guest account on Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit and noticed that after logging in to the guest account, I am able to access my own account folder (admin account). This is wierd as this should not happen. Any user logged in to the guest account should not be able to see the contents of the admin account.

How can I prevent this from happenning? Can you also suggest any third party software that can do this?

Thanks

A:Preventing Guest from accessing Admin account

Hello werty.

I think the contents that are viewable to the guest account are the "shared folders", or is this incorrect? The guest account should not be able to see all your files and folders, only shared folders and public folders, according to your settings in "advanced sharing options" (Found by typing the phrase without quotes into your start menu search bar).

If you do not want that function, make sure to turn off public folder sharing and file and printer sharing, and make sure you turn password protected sharing ON (so a password is required for any networked computers as added security).

We have a DFS network share that is hosted at a remote data-center and shared with other locations. All our computers are still windows 7 64 bit Enterprise edition based off the same image. The computers at the other locations are setup with different domains,
hardware, and computer images. I have not heard any issues at for the file share at other locations only here. Here the issues occur for every computer that attempts to access the specific files. Accessing the files sometimes work and sometimes doesn't. When
it doesn't its the same files for everyone. After a while those files will start working and other files will now have the issue.

The issue is that when trying to copy, open, delete, or manipulate the file in any way explorer or what ever program is trying to access the file will stop responding, crash, or throw an error. Typically the files are .dotm word template files. When in the
directory of the problematic file, file explorer will load for ever until it gives up with the little green loading bar slowly going across the top. After trying to open, move, copy, or delete the file We will get these errors. There are no ... Read more

Greetings all.

Here's what we're working with...

Windows XP Pro SP3 machines.
Workgroup environment connected to our company domain via Sonicwall VPN devices. Each workgroup computer has a WINS entry so we can resolve names to IP's.

I can ping the PC names, but when trying to access the administrative share, the PC is not found. I know i overlooked some mundane detail, and to be honest, i need a hand since my brain hurts.

Anyone?

Hello,
I was trying to figure out a way to block admin share access over windows domain network.
These are my requirements:

Desktop Support Engineers should have administrator privileges on all domain joined windows workstation machines. Domain Users should not have administrator privileges on their workstations.Desktop support engineers should not be able to access admin share over the network.Domain Admin must have full access on Admin Share.
So I have added NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE as a member of Buit-In administrators group and I have added Desktop Support Group as a member of NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE.
Which actually blocked admin share access over network for Desktop support engineers. however I was not able to control Domain Users getting Administrative privileges on domain joined PCs from above settings.

How can I control this admin share access?   

Thanks in advance.
Isurinda.

Hey

Does anyone know the answer to this? I have created a workgroup, my desktop and a laptop, both using XP pro accessing using same netgear router... I have created an account on the laptop (the one i was to connect to) called luke and this has been added to the admin group.

Now I login onto my desktop as luke so i figured the laptop would let me access its admin$ share? i can access the laptops basic share folder (shareddocs)... but when i try to connect to the laptops admin$ a "connect to" screen which shows the username set to "guest" which is greyed out and cant be changed! I even added guest to the admin group and set a password to see what would happen but still no difference

Hi,

I sometimes need to VNC to users machines to install Active X as I have admin rights while basic users dont. At present I log the user out and log in with my account and do the install.

Is there a way I can access my admin privileges without logging the current user out?

I recently installed Windows 8.1 on a new drive but can no longer easily access my files on another drive that had those files under Windows 7. Many programs crash whenever they try to write to those drivers and so on, when I try to open a folder it prompts me to hit the Continue button using admin privileges.

How can I fix this?

e: I found a solution I think here: After Upgrading, all my programs require Admin Privileges? [Solved] - Access Data - Windows 8

I'm going through it now and will report my findings.

Running Win 8.1. Recently installed Office 365 with several errors that MS support helped me with. Now I find that none of the Office programs are on the default program list although I was able to associated most them with extensions. I was able to restore the url:mailto extension with the help of this forum, but I can associate Outllok to it because it won't come up in the list when asked to pick a program. Is there any way I can get my Office programs back on the list or registered in the registry to correct this?

A:Office programs not in deault program list

I had a corrupt registry which caused this problem and, as I learned, others. Restoring a Macrium image to a previous date corrected this problem, which brought up another. Separate posting.

My laptop has only ever had one admin user account with full access to sensitive information, but I have now added a non-admin account which needs occasional access to restricted content.

I want to give temporary access only to a personal folder.

It seems that once the non admin user opens the specific restricted folder (and I input my admin password), this gives permanent access to this folder. To deny access again, I have to log back into my admin account and click 'Stop Sharing'.

Is there a way to time-out access, or have access automatically suspended via switch user/log off?

Many thanks
D

A:TEMPORARILY share a folder between admin/nonadmin accounts

Instead of using Explorer you can get more control with
Net Use




Also in a command prompt run this for options list

Hi there, I'm sat here at my mum's at the moment, and she really needs to me help fix a computer error for her I've googled and searched and can't seem to fix the error, if you could help me asap I would really appreciate it please

Basically, she has two user accounts on her pc - both set to admin. She uses admin B all the time and admin A rarely.

Admin A contains Microsoft Office (preinstalled on the pc), but she can't access it from Admin B - which is what she ultimately wants to do.

How can I set it so she can access it from her regular admin account (B)?

I hope this is clear enough and thank so much in advance of your kind help

I want to be able to share Administrator documents and files with user acoounts on the same computer.... without having access to the internet.


I only have one computer. But I have 7 different user accounts on that one computer. I want each of my users to have access to the Administrators documents (files and folders etc)

I went to Administrator Documents, then I Right clicked on a folder, then I clicked on Share With>specific people> I click on the user account and then I get a box saying my folder was succcessfully shared, and now I need to email a link to the specific user account.

I do all this and then switch user. I go to the users email and try to click on the link and it wont click. I try to copy and paste into the users documents, but it will not copy and paste.

I go to the user's Documents and try to see if there is a link there....but nothing is there.

What am I doing wrong?
thanks

Internet access is fine.

Trouble is accessing Router admin page Engenius ESR6650 using windows 7. I try using the guides 192.168.0.1 but comes up with cannot find page error.

I might have reset to default a few months ago but that shouldn't affect ability to access admin page?

A:Accessing Router admin page Engenius ESR6650 using windows 7

Windows Key + R

Look under your adapter, for me it is Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection.
Check what the Default Gateway is, for me it is 192.168.0.1.
Enter your Default Gateway and see where that brings you.

Dear folks

NESS D8XD alarm system installed on a business for my friend and a technician who installed it he said he didn't change the alarm system default ip address.

http://nesscorporation.com/ness-security/ness-control-panels/home-security/k-6308.html

Default ip is 192.168.0.251 ,,,as per the advise of their National Customer Service Centre,,,I called them and spoke with them

The confusing part I can ping this ip address (192.168.0.251) but it is neither in the list of the attached wired devices nor in the list of attached wireless devices (any way NESS is a wired box)

Snapshot below is for the attached wired devices :

And the ping result is below :

Does your "router table" show all connected devices? Or, like my router, does it show only all the devices connected with a dynamic (DHCP) IP address but not the ones with a static IP?

If the latter, you have your answer.

At work, there's another server in a different domain and when accessing shares we sometime get the message prompt for credentials and system detected compromised security...etc.  It's very random in nature, although, once the share comes up it then
never prompts afterwards for that session.  It's 2008 server win 7 clients.
