"The Sharing option is not available for the Documents and Settings, Program Files, and WINDOWS system folders. In addition, you cannot share folders in other user's profiles "
I recently discovered that I had the root of the drive shared for a bit on my old xp system, and was wondering what the above paragraph means in terms of what was viewable and what was not.
Someone told me that although it says Documents and Settings was not available for sharing on the microsoft support page (link below) that it would still have been viewable. How is that right? It does not seem right to me, why would it say that if you could still view all of it.
Also, what does it mean by "share folders in other users profiles"? Keep in mind the paragraph I quoted is under "To share a drive or folder over the network" so it should be applicable to my situtaion of having the root drive shared.
