Access-based enumeration displays only the files and folders that a user has permissions to access.
On a computer that is running Windows Server 2008, access-based enumeration is enabled by default on every folder that is shared by using the File Sharing feature. (This is the default sharing feature that is available through Windows Explorer).However, access-based enumeration is not enabled by default on the following types of shared folders: Shared folders that are created with Share and Storage Management, Advanced Sharing in Windows Explorer, or the net share command Volumes Folders or volumes that are shared for administrative purposes, such as C$ and ADMIN$
Access-based enumeration can be manually enabled or disabled on individual shared folders and volumes by using Share and Storage Management. This snap-in is available after a folder or volume has been shared. You can access Share and Storage Management in the File Services server role in Server Manager, and in Administrative Tools. You can also install it manually in Server Manager by adding the File Server role service to File Services.There are two ways to enable and disable access-based enumeration by using Share and Storage Management: Share a folder or volume by using the Provision a Shared Folder Wizard. If you select the SMB protocol on the Share Protocols page of the Provision a Shared Folder Wizard, the advanced settings options on the SMB Settings page includes the option to enable access-based enumeration on the shared folder or volume. (To see the advanced settings options, on the SMB Settings page of the wizard, click Advanced). Change the properties of an existing shared folder or volume. To change the properties of an existing shared folder or volume, on the Shares tab of Share and Storage Management, click the shared folder or volume, and then click Properties in the Action pane. The information under Advanced settings displays whether access-based enumeration is enabled. Click Advanced and then select or clear the Enable access-based enumeration check box.
