    Interesting Hidden Share Question...

    I'm remotely accessing a Citrix desktop through Citrix XP on a corporate LAN. The server is Windows 2000 (not Server Edition). The PC I'm accessing it on is Windows XP Pro.

    Okay.

    So, I remote this desktop which uses a roaming profile (which copies the profile locally to the server temporarily, until I log out), and then access my profile, then Local Settings, and then Temporary Internet Files. I see tons of cookies and all sorts of Internet files.

    Now, when I access the server desktop through the hidden share: \\server\c$ and log in as the administrator, and go to the same profile, and the same Temporary Internet Files, I don't see anything but the folders and desktop.ini.

    I am a system administrator, with more rights than God, and I still can't see the same stuff unless I'm actually remoted into the server... does anyone have any idea why this is so? I dare you all to test it out...

    Any possible answers, please, would be very appreciated. It's just an inquiry.

    So you're trying to run Windows 2000 Professional as a server?

    I've figured it out. Sorry, it was Windows 2000 Server.


    It's just a Windows security thing, where you can only view those files if you are logged in as the user directly. Even if you are looking at your own profile through the hidden share, because it is a network connection and not a direct connection, Windows will not allow you to see those specific files in any profile.

    I figured this out, because I can see these files on my own profile locally, but on someone else's profile locally I cannot, until I logged in as them.
