Keep receiving warning level messages (Source: Server) in System event log:

The server service was unable to recreate the share xyz because the directory E:\xyz no longer exists. Please run "net share xyz /delete" to delete the share, or recreate the directory E:\xyz.

But net share of course does not list such share (there is no such share), so there is nothing to delete.

    Right click on the Start button and select Computer Management. From the left pane, expand Shared Folders and select Shares. From the right, see if you can delete your share. – user477799 Jan 20 '17 at 13:56
  • Did you use Offline Folders for that Share? – daraos Jan 20 '17 at 14:02

    Did you try running the net share xyz /delete command anyway (as administrator)? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jan 20 '17 at 14:13
  • 1. The Computer Management , Shared Folder Extensions shows the same shares as the "net share" command shows. In this case unfortunately the xyz share it is not listed there, nor shows up with "net share". I do not know if it was an Offline Folder that share 2. I have run the net share xyz /delete and it returned: This shared resource does not exist. And this is the true, because there is no such share – fxmbs Jan 20 '17 at 14:40
  • Make sure you run as administrator. Its a different userprofile and thus different shares. – LPChip Jan 20 '17 at 14:53
