Creating a Shared Folder with Windows Server 2012

If you want your users to access data from a Windows Server 2012 location, then you will have to Share out the folder that the users require access to.

If you want your users to access data from a Windows Server 2012 location, then you will have to Share out the folder that the users require access to.

One of the courses I teach is the Microsoft Windows 2012 Installing and Configuring course, the Microsoft designation is the 20410B .

In the presentation, we look at sharing folders in Microsoft Windows Server 2012.

Shared folders are a key component to granting access to files on your server from the network. When you share a folder, the folder and all of its contents are made available to multiple users simultaneously over the network. Shared folders maintain a separate set of permissions from the NTFS permissions, which apply to the folder's contents. These permissions are used to provide an extra level of security for files and folders that are made available on the network.

The demonstration is available at the BryanQA Youtube site
