what service controls network shares?

hi, i use encrypted volumes & containers, some of which have network shares on.. but the only problem is after a restart, i have to remake/configure all the shares, as the drives/folders arnt availiable until ive entered my keyfiles/passphrases..

so was thinking it would be less hassle for me to just set whichever service controls shares to disabled... then just enabale that after i have mounted the encrypted volumes/containers

this is much less hassle than setting up 12 or so shares and permissions

or is there any command/setting that can pause the startup of services for a set amount of time?
and is it just the "network connections" service that i need to stop from aurto startup?

p.s - Xp pro, sp2 (& all current hotfixes)

Not sure what the exact service is, but you could do a batch file with the appropriate services. If it was called "service1", you could do this:

net start service1

Run that when you are ready.
sorted it...

net /y stop lanmanserver
net start browser

also can be remade in batch via this cmd
net share sharename=x: /Grant:everyone,Read

heh i always used to dread rebooting.. having to remake all the shares (especially bad this week with having an electrician here rewiring, so this box is on/off/on/off)
glad its sorted now:)
Interesting approach indeed, I'm sure I can find a usage for that.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
