Sharing Windows Folders

Both drives and folders can be shared on a Windows network and the server that supplies these types of services is typically referred to as a file server. A file server provides a repository for files that must be accessed by the users on your network. Not only do file servers provide data access to users but they also often serve as a place where users can save files, either in a home directory or a directory that can also be accessed by other users.

A Windows file server can be created using the Configure Your Server Wizard. A share is simply a drive or folder that you share for access by your users. After specifying the server as a file server using the Configure Your Server Wizard, the Share a Folder Wizard starts automatically; click Next to bypass the initial wizard screen.
