Windows 2003 Server Shared folder disappear

By vijayakaran ·
I shared the folder on Windows 2003 R3 Server. After some hours the shared folder becomes unshared and the shared and security button also missing. After reboot the things are coming back.

I mapped the shared folder from my client machine.

Can any one help to over come this problem ?

Thanks in advance.

do you want to why the shared folder became unshare

what exactly do you mean by security button or you mean 'security' tab in property of a folder

i believe you should be ok if reboot and things come back normal

Thanks for posting reply Joshocan.

I wanted to know
1) why the shared folder become unshare ?
2) why the share & security tab missing ?

After reboot everything is normal but the shared folder becoming unshared after few hours. I don't want to unshared itself.

Thanks again,

try this..

On 2003 server

1. Start - Run
2. Type services.msc
3. Look for "server "in the list, right click then click start..

Your shared folder should be back, post update after doing this if it works or not..

For some cases the server services just stopped itself, I dont know yet the reason why this happens but restarting this service should solve your problem..
