How do I monitor hidden file shares?

If you specified a single server name, then Netwrix Auditor for Windows File Servers will monitor all available file shares on that server, except hidden (ending with $ sign) shares. If you want to monitor hidden shares, you need to add them explicitly, specifying a full UNC path for each.
Also, in a case of all files shares residing in the same folder or disk drive, you may configure audit on that parent folder instead.

NOTE: It is not recommended to specify the system drive (\\servername\c$) as an Item. This will force Netwrix to audit local folders. Producing a lot of noise data and destabilising Netwrix performance.
