Using Server 2008 R2 for File Server

Well lately I have been working on moving a lot of network resources from our old (ex-Small Business Sever) server to new server hardware which is now running the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system. It has been a slow process of moving services and applications around, but just recently I finally removed our old server from the DFS replication and namespace. We are now purely running on the Server 2008 R2 for file serving in our office and it has introduced a lovely feature that should have been there from the start:

If a user does not have access to a folder or file, that folder or file is no longer visible to them.

That is perfect! Obviously a small thing but a very nice thing!
