  1. Is it safe to disable service Server?


    Hi!

    when I google for services that are safe to disable, none of the articles seem to mention Server. But service called Server is responsible for all kinds of shares like \\localhost\c$ which could potentially be security problem. Is it sefe to disable it or if I do then what functionality will it break? If I google the how to disable admin shares on windows then all the articles tell how to disable shares via computer management or regedit or control panel and so on while not even mentioning the most effective way - disable the service Server. Is there reason for that, or is it just something that tutorial makers have overlooked?

    :)

    Can't safely remove external disk

    In reference to the steps of your suggestions:

    • The issue is specific to the particular disk and it started after I've used the disk to save the System image backup (created with the Control Panel > File History tool).
    • I didn't disable any windows Service. I'm just wondering if there is any to disable.
    • Safe boot with networking, or clean boot doesn't resolve the issue.

    Thank you.

    Is it safe to disable service Server?

    Advise on disabling services


    I just want to know which ones are not safe and must not be disabled, I must disable AJRouter when I don't use their service, Auto Time Zone Updater when absolutely not needed, BitLocker Drive Encryption, when never use it, etc...
    I just want from my list, remove the ones that makes problems.
    For example, which ones from my list disable WIFI or VPN services?
    Thanks,
