Creating File Shares with PowerShell

Posted by Alan McBurney on July 23, 2013

I’m gradually moving more and more to PowerShell only for server administration.

Today I needed to create a new file share for a Lync 2013 Std Edition installation on Server 2012 and once again I looked to achieve this though the Shell.

As it turns out that this is a very simple task so with no further ado here is the syntax

New-SmbShare –Name LyncShare -Path C:\LyncShare –Description “Lync 2013 File Share” –FullAccess Administrators
