  • Hi, 

    Share and Storage Management can only be used to manager windows server 2008 and Windows server 2008 R2. Server Manager can be used to manage Windows Server 2012 or later systems.

    Though you need setting to enable this feature do below steps.

    Server manager> Add Roles and Features Wizard> go to features option and choose below settings.

    Remote Server Administrative Tools 
    Roles Administration Tools
    Files services Tools 
    Share and Storage Management Tool

    Or else use normal computer management console compmgmt.msc>System Tools> Shared Folders > use open files or sessions tab

    or use NET FILE command to see open/used/lock files
