Chapter 20. Sharing Network Files > Shared Folders Online

20.3. Shared Folders Online

One of Windows XP's slickest features is its ability to treat hard drives out on the Internet as though they were directly connected to your system. You can create shortcuts that bring servers like these directly onto your screen, where they appear in standard folder windows:

  • FTP sites (private, password-protected sets of folders on the Internet).

  • Web sites that have been specially prepared to serve as online "folders." Certain data-backup Web sites work this way: they provide you with, say, a 50 MB hard drive in the sky—actually on the Internet—that you can use to store whatever files you like.

  • Folders on corporate intranets.
