Windows Server 2008 R2 Shares - Access-Based Enumeration

A new sharing feature included with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is called access-based enumeration. Access-based enumeration, when enabled on a share, hides the folders or files within the share from view for users who do not have access to the data. Access-based enumeration, however, does not hide the share itself. This feature can simplify data access for end users as they will only see what they can access, but, on the flip side, users who are collaborating and trying to instruct their co-workers on where to locate the data might be confused when the folders cannot be located.
