Shared files on Windows


To share files among Windows machines, set up a share on the server and access it from the client. You can access files on the share either by specifying a UNC path (\\server\share\path) or connecting the share to a local drive name and using a drive:\path syntax. Using UNC is recommended because drive mappings may be different across machines, while UNC allows you to unambiguously refer to a file on the network.
