You can use folders to create additional levels of hierarchy in a namespace. You can also create folders with folder targets to add shared folders to the namespace. DFS folders with folder targets cannot contain other DFS folders, so if you want to add a level of hierarchy to the namespace, do not add folder targets to the folder. Follow this procedure to create a folder in a namespace.

To create a folder in a namespace
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management.

  2. In the console tree, under the Namespaces node, right-click a namespace or a folder within a namespace, and then click New Folder.

  3. In the Name text box, type the name of the new folder.

  4. To add one or more folder targets to the folder, click Add and specify the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of the folder target, and then click OK.
