The NET Share command is used to manage file/printer shares.
Syntax NET SHARE sharename=drive:path [/GRANT:user,[READ | CHANGE | FULL]] [/USERS:number | /UNLIMITED]] [/REMARK:"text"] [/CACHE:Manual | Documents | Programs | BranchCache | None ] NET SHARE sharename /DELETE NET SHARE devicename /DELETE NET SHARE drive:path /DELETE
To modify an existing share, the syntax above can be simplified to NET SHARE sharename ...
with the one exception of the /GRANT option.

NET SHARE work

To retrieve share details from a remote machine, use WMIC share

NET SHARE work=C:\docs\work /REMARK:"work share" /CACHE:No
Limit the number of users who can connect to a share
NET SHARE work /USERS:15
Remove any limit on the number of users who can connect to a share
NET SHARE work /UNLIMITED
Delete the share
NET SHARE work /DELETE
Delete all shares that apply to a given device
NET SHARE devicename /DELETE
In this case the devicename can be a printer (Lpt1) or a pathname (C:\Docs\)
To create file shares, File and Printer sharing must be enabled on the (server) computer.
