Shares offer users access to files and folders over the network. Users can connect to the network share and access their contents: applications and public or private data of the user.
A share is a directory accessible from the network for multiple users simultaneously. Once the folder is shared, users can access, if they have the appropriate permissions to all files and subfolders it contains.
A typical use of shared data folders is to provide a central place for the common user access to files and provide backups of the data contained in those files.
