Chapter 6. Sharing Folders and Files on ... > Working with Shared Folders

Working with Shared Folders

The Windows Home Server Dashboard gives you quite a few ways to work with the server’s shared folders, including adding new shared folders, moving a shared folder, accessing shadow copies, and deleting a folder. The next few sections take you through all of these shared folder tasks.

Creating a New Shared Folder

Windows Home Server’s predefined shared folders should suit most needs, but you might require other folders to hold different file types. For example, you might want a folder for scripts, a folder for downloaded programs, or a folder to hold user calendars. (See “Publishing a Windows Vista Calendar to the Server,” later in this chapter.) Windows Home Server allows you to create as many shared folders as you need. Again, it’s possible to create and share folders outside of the Dashboard, but if you want use the simple permissions system, you need to create and share the folder within the Windows Home Server Dashboard.
