Remove shared folders without removing access.
I had a fun time trying to share my library folders with my XP machines. I finally sorted it out, but in trying to get them shared I shared them individually in one attempt (which did not work, the problem that solved it was that I had to add 'Everyone' under Security.)
My question is this: how do I go about removing the individual folders from the network list yet leave them so that access will be granted via the file structure (the drives are shared.) (I.e. I do not want 9 folders showing up in the network list.) If it matters to the answer, I've already taken full possession and set the security of all the libraries to 'Everyone.' So, my 'My Documents' which is on D, is currently shared by itself, so is the drive D. I want to remove the 'My Documents' from list, but still have access via the XP machines from the drive D including the 'My Documents' folder on it.
