Thank you for posting in the Microsoft newsgroup!
From your post, my understanding on this issue is: you noticed Vista shared
your user folder automatically. If I'm off base, please feel free to let me
Thanks to Michael for his key in.
Just like Michael said, sharing a folder under your profile folder will let
all the parent folders appear. This behavior is by design.
The following file mentioned this behavior as well:
Sharing a Folder or Printer in Windows Vista http://www.microsoft.com/technet/net..._fp.mspx#ECHAC
I understand your feelings on this behavior. By my test, others can access
folders under the profile folder. Though they won't see any file there, it
doesn't make people feel secure. If you have concern on this behavior,
please feel free to submit your suggestion on our product to the following
link. Our Product Group reviews the suggestions submitted by our customers.
