Invisible Shared Folders

Find Invisible or Hidden Shared Folders in Your Network

Invisible or hidden shared folders are often used if people want to share a folder but do not want to list it publically in the network so that only users who are aware of the shared folder can find it. Lansweeper automatically scans shared folders from Windows computers and servers, even hidden shared folders. This allows you to gain full visibility of the folders shared in your network so that you are never caught off guard about what is shared across your network. The audit lists all computers along with the folder and path of the hidden shared folders.
