Hidden Windows Share

20 05 2009

The nice thing about domain accounts is that if you have logged into another comp using a domain accout, it CREATES an account on that system. Next time you access that comp using windows share, it lets you see your profile data directly πŸ™‚

Now, if you have admin privileges on that comp (or maybe even otherwise)… you basically get to see ALL the data on that comp… now although these things may not show up when you do a \\computer-name in explorer, here’s what you can do


Basically, add a $ at the end of C … this will show you contents of C:

Another neat trick is \\computer-name\ADMIN$

that opens up the windows folder (note you cannot exactly use %windir% coz that will be the local system variable πŸ™‚ )

Neat na? Of course it is.
