I want to know about the default sharing of hard disk partitions such as C$ and D$.These folders are only accessible from my computer and asks a password on other computer on network.I have tried all related passwords of my computer on it but still this doesnt works.Can any one know what is the purpose of these Default Drive sharing which can be seen from
Control Panel->Adminintrative tools->Comp management->Shared folders->shares.
How can i access these drives from another pc.Is it possibe...Also can some one else get access to it if he knows my admin or LAN password.HOW can i disable this sharing(Every time i disable it comes back after restart)
ALSO let me know about other default sharings such as IPC$ and ADMIN$ :whistling:

the ADMIN$ is shared for remote administration like when using RDP..

don't know about ipc but it says it's for remote ipc..whatever that is

the other two...c and d...have to be shared if there is anything bellow it shared....like if you have a shared folder of c:\windows\shared folder...then c has to be shared (by default) for you to get to the other portions of the shared path
