Ubuntu 16.04: I am trying to start afresh with some Folder Shares so I removed them from the smb.conf file but one still persists and I can't find where it is defined in order to remove it. I tried the follwing and it shows the errant Share, but not where it is defined. I have also checked the Properties for the Folder in question and it shows as not shared.

net usershare info --long


Where is this Share defined and how do I delete it?


Net usershares are not defined in the smb.conf file.

To remove your share, it is actually quite easy with the following command:

net usershare delete qrtShare

That should clear that share out for you.

Hope this helps!
