    I am using ScriptLogic Cloak on one of my Win2003 Server. I heard that
    Win2003 SP1 can perform what Cloak does to hide unnecessary folders and files
    from user's view.

    Could anyone tell how to configure the Win2003 SP1 to achieve what Cloak does?

    Is the said feature turned on automatically once I install Win2003 SP1 on the
    If no, how to turn on this feature.

    In fact, I have been using ScriptLogic Cloak,whereas, I find that some of my
    XP workstations come across sluggish performance when trying to perform copy
    action to the Cloak installed Win2003 server. That's why I am trying to
    explore the new feature of Win2003 SP1 to try to replace the feature provided
    by Cloak.

    It is not turned on by default.
    MS did finally publish a KB article about this a couple/few
    weeks ago, but for life of me I cannot put a URL on it right now.

  5. The ability is there and turned on, but you have to tell the server which shares
    to use that function on. The tool I provided in the link the previous post will
    let you enable this on the shares.
