3. Components > Create Shared Folder

Name

Create Shared Folder — \windows\system32\shrpubw.exe

Synopsis

The easiest way to begin sharing a folder or drive is to right-click on its icon in Explorer, select Sharing and Security, and turn on the "Share this folder on the network" option. However, this procedure allows you to share only local folders. If you need to access an unshared folder on a remote computer and you have administrative rights on that machine, you can use the Create Shared Folder utility. To share resources on a remote computer, use the /s parameter, like this: shrpubw /s computer_name. Then, fill in the Folder to share field (the full local path of the folder), the Share name (the name under which the folder will be known on the network), and the optional Share description.
