Or go all hostile postal worker on the network, open services.msc, stop "server" service, rename folder, restart service. (do not recommend since stops ALL shares..lol but would work) - Seriously, just kidding, don't suggest doing that on corporate domain. Home network, not a big deal. Large network that needs high availability of files, don't do that unless overnight when everyone is off the network shares and doesn't impact end users.

Hence dropping the server service, cutting all shares, doing your thing, then restarting it (overnight of course when no one is on the domain and needs file share access).
