After you disconnect users in the Control Panel Server option, they may appear to still be connected in the Shared Resources dialog box.


Some types of applications (such as File Manager) automatically reconnect a share after you drop the session from the server system.


This functionality was designed into Windows NT as a feature. C
If you want to keep all sessions dropped from a server (such as to close files and back them up), first Pause the Server service. You can do this with the Control Panel Server option. After the server is paused, go into the Server option and disconnect the sessions. When the application attempts to automatically reconnect, it will be refused until the server is no longer paused.
