Use the Data Access tab of the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 mobile device configuration package properties dialog box to specify the data access properties of the configuration package.

Specify the configuration pack settings.

Access distribution folder through common ConfigMgr package share

Specifies whether users will access the configuration package through the common Configuration Manager 2007 package share (SMSPKGx$, where x is the drive letter) on distribution points. This option is selected by default.
Share distribution folder

Specifies whether the configuration package will be created on distribution points with an administrator-specified share and path name. Selecting this option requires a share name.
Share name

Specifies a share name or path to be created for the configuration package source files on distribution points. Two options are available:
  • The value can be a share, in which case the name must be unique across all packages. If this option is used, all files and subdirectories within that share will be deleted and re-created each time the package is updated or refreshed.

  • The value can be a share and a path, in the format sharename\path, in which case the path must be unique across all packages. If this option is used, only the final directory in the path will be deleted and re-created each time the package is updated or refreshed.

Do not enter a full Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path in Share name, such as \\server\share. Instead enter a share and path name in the format sharename\path.
To control which drive a configuration package folder is created on, you can assign the distribution point role to a server share rather than a server computer. For distribution points on server shares, if a share name is entered for a configuration package, it is treated as a path beneath the distribution point share (\\MyServer\MyShare).
Disconnect users from distribution points

Specifies that users will be disconnected from distribution points when Configuration Manager 2007 updates configuration package data. This check box is cleared by default. If this option is selected, the following settings are available:
  • Number of retries before disconnecting users: Specifies the number of times that Configuration Manager 2007 tries to update the configuration package source files before disconnecting users connected to the distribution point. The default setting is 2; you can specify 0 to 99, inclusive.

Interval between user notification and disconnection (minutes): Specifies the number of minutes Configuration Manager 2007 will wait after notifying users before disconnecting them from distribution points. The default setting is 5 minutes; you can specify  0 to 59 minutes, inclusive.
