Hi guys. I have a fleet of windows 7 machines using CIFS shares on C-Mode over SMBv2 with SMB signing. I have snapdir enabled at volume level and disabled at share level. This should allow me manually browse the ~snapshot directory by entering a full path. This does not work though if in windows explorer I enter the full path in the address bar. It works from other entry points though for example (UAC enabled and at defaults on machine):
Direct path is \\10.201.2.56\vol_1\~snapshot\ in my lab
dir command run non-elevated works
dir command run elevated works
type path into run dialog in start menu works
type path in windows explorer address bar does not work and yeilds
I have disbaled UAC and issue perists. No GPO being applied here. Anyone come accross this before?
Thanks for the replies but I think you are missing my point. I can access the ~snapshot folder without issue in 3 out of 4 ways. I don't want it to be displayed by default in the share root when browsing but have the option to manually browse it if required. As far as I can see it, enabled snapshot visibility at the share level simply allows for the ~snapshot folder to be seems in windows explorer by default if 'show hidden files' is enabled in windows.
