I assume you mean that you cant see the folder with a hand icon on shared folders. This is due to the account not having admin rights. The folder is still shared but only admin can see via the icon. This can be altered by changing the desktop.ini orsimilar file but is quite advanced.

The resources are shared but you cant see then as shared as a Power User.

If you are running on network, have you right clicked on the folder, gone to properties & checked if the user has security permissions to the folder? Also, does the user have the rights to the shared folder on your network server?

If policy permits, make sure the "power user" is a member of the "Local" administrators group.

Windows NT creats default shares for the hard drives. Any domain admin can access the shares. The shares are the drive letter followed by a dollar sign (c$,e$) the dollar sign can be used at the end of any share and renders that share hidden. You must use the net use command or map network drive command.
It's a pretty nifty way to get at a users drive. Simply go to a dos shell, type net use m: \\ntserver\c$ (help is available for net use)
This mapped the ntserver's c drive.
You can't see theshares as a power user because it is administrative privlige only. Add the power users group to the administrators group and they will be able to see it. Just remember to remove them from the admin group after you test it.

Just add a share to each drive, giving access to power users. The default c$, d4, ect. are only usable by administrators. Just name them something without the $ and they will be seen by all users and can be accessed by whichever groups you choose.
