Today I came across a machine that had no "Security", no "Sharing" and no "Quotas" tab inside the Explorer for folders or drives (especially for the C: drive this is annoying).
Searching on the web for a solution just brought up the usual "You need to disable Simple folder sharing inside Folder options" that did not help at all.
Several hours of searching in very obscure forum systems and stumbling across ShellExView (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html) finally revealed the solution: Several system DLLs were not correctly registered inside the registry and thus the tabs were missing.
Using ProcessMonitor I was able to identify the dlls that were missing and created the following batch file:
REM Security tab
REM Quota tab
REM Offline Files
REM Previous Versions
REM Remote Storage
REM Distributed File System
Once this script has run inside a command shell the tabs magically appeared again.
