I thought of that too. Although it probably wouldn't crash until you did something like dir /s in a cmd prompt with default directory being the share. If it didn't crash it would sure give the remote HD something to do in the background.

Windows 7 pro 64 bit with XP Mode

 	Total left field option ...

have you thought of remote access to the actual server rather than sharing drives? this is what I always use as it gives full access without the overhead of shares

any ways ...
There are two levels of administrator in Windows after Vista, the member of the administrator's group, which is what you are normally assigned as first user or from the users control panel applet, these are limited and also are controlled by the UAC (user account control). there is also an additional Administrator user - this user is not affected by the UAC and is the same as the old XP and previous system. This user is normally blocked and needs to be activated

This administrator is the only one that has access to the C$ type system shares

you would need to activate and run as this admin on both the server and your local system to get things to work which is a rather dangerous way to operate as it would circumvent many security features
Thanx Barman58, this did the trick
