    Can't stop network share

    I just set up a quick share to allow another computer to get some files. I then noticed I was already sharing another folder that I had forgotten to stop sharing so I stopped that one from sharing.

    When I got the files I wanted on my other computer I went to stop the share I had just set up but the sharing option is off even though I can see and access it on the network and I can't seem to stop it from sharing.

    Any ideas how to stop this share?

    I have tried renaming the folder. When I do this the share disappears from the network but when I name it back again the share re-activates. There is no icon telling me the folder is shared.

    I have tried rebooting, restarting the samba service and restarting nautilus but its still invisibly shared.

    I have managed to do it through nautilus in the end. I was about to resort to removing the entry in smb.conf the I thought 'what if I shared it again , then deselected sharing and pressed the modify share button' so I did and it worked. Here is a screenshot of what I had before if anyone has seen anything similar.
