How Windows Shares Resources

Sharing is a critical part of almost any Windows-based network. Sharing in Windows networks means users can make resources on their computers available to other users. Without sharing, users are forced to copy the files and folders they want so that other users are free to access the network server volume. But, if a folder is shared over a network, anyone on the network who is allowed access to the folder can work with the original information, not copies. The Windows Explorer and My Network Places make working with a shared folder as easy as working with a folder on a local hard drive.

In addition to sharing folders, users can share other resources on their computers. An example of another resource a user would share is a printer.
