Sharing a Folder

During setup, Windows NT automatically designates one folder (usually named WINNT) as a shared folder. This folder contains your Windows NT files, as well as other pertinent information about your system. The Administrators and Backup Operator groups can access this folder through the network at any time, but they are the only individuals who can access this folder.

You can designate other folders on your computer as "shared" so that others on the network can view and use them. All files within a shared folder are also shared, unless you specifically mark some as not shared (as described in Lesson 22). Each shared folder has an outstretched hand icon next to it in the Explorer's window (see Figure 19.1).
