Windows 10: How to Delete all SMBshares using Powershell?

    How to Delete all SMBshares using Powershell?

    I've disabled SMB in "Turn Windows Features On or Off".

    How can I remove the SMBShares that return the following error when I enter remove-smbshare <Sharename>?

    Sample Error:
    remove-smbshare : The request is not supported.At line:1 char:1+ remove-smbshare <Sharename>$+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (MSFT_SmbShare (...copeName = "*"):ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/SMB/MSFT_SMB Share) [Remove-SmbShare], CimException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Windows System Error 50,Remove-SmbShare

    I'm already running Powershell as Administrator.

    Have you tried re-enabling SMB and removing the shares with SMB enabled, then disabling SMB?

    Yes. The problem was originally encountered with SMB enabled.

    Assuming your on the machine where the share was created, have you tried ...
    Remove-SmbShare -Name "YOUR-SHARE-NAME"
