Data is commonly shared over the network by creating a network share. The network share is typically a shared folder that may or may not have password protection.

With the growing security consciousness for modern people, they are busy to remember their bank numbers, names of people, phone numbers, social security numbers and dozens of others things. Who has time to remember their Windows password? But when they lost Windows password, they feel that the world is coming to an end. Don't fret; you can definitely resume access with a variety of techniques.Here I would like to share some ways to help you find lost Windows password:It is smart and cautious for you to create a password reset disk before you lose your Windows password (absolutely NOT after that). You are allowed by Microsoft to create a password reset disk which can be a flash drive or a floppy disk depending on your version of Windows.Pros: Free, easy-to-deal, only create disk once no matter how many times you change your password after creating the disk.Cons: It only works before you lost Windows password. If you never created one by yourself before losing access to Windows, you have to try other method.Another way to recover your Windows password is to use the password hint which is at the side of your password prompt on the Welcome screen. According to it, you can try to regain your forgotten password.Pros: Convenient, free.Cons: It often doesn't work if you have a bad memory.The most efficient way is to use the third party software. I have experienced one named Windows Password Key Standard. It is fast and easy enough for windows password crackers with a basic knowledge of Windows to recover, or reset lost Windows Password.Pros: Easy- to operate, convenient, enable you to burn disk after you forgot Windows Password.Cons: PremiumBelow is the step-by-step tutorial about how to operate it:Step 1: Download, install and run Windows Password Key Standard on a working PC.Step 2: Prepare for a blank and writable CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and next insert it to the PC for the purpose of burning the image file to it and making it as a Windows password reset disk.Step 3: Insert the created password reset disk to the target PC and set the PC boot from CD/DVD or USB.Step 4: Start to reset the forgotten Windows Vista password with the password reset disk in less than 3 clicks of button.Yes, you have retrieved your lost Windows Vista Password successfully. What are you waiting for? Just grab them and share them with your friends.

Hi there! If you want to share files, you must have both computers linked to the internet modem you are currently on. Both computers including where the original file/folder must be turned on.Both computers must be on the local area network (the same internet modem). 1.Open up the folder/file and click on the file/folder you want to share. 2.Drag it into the shared documents folder. 3.You should be able to access it on the other computer in the shared documents in my computer. I hope this was useful, if you have any problems please send a private message to me, drkzin.

If you share a folder with someone else then that means they have access to your computer. A virus will notice that and worm it's way over to both of your systems.

There is a big difference between a file share and a folder. A folder is simply a directory where files, data, and other folders can be stored. Folders usually reside on your computer, and are not accessible on other networks. A file share, however, is a folder that can be accessed by other computers on a network, if permission is granted. Basically, its just a folder accessible to other computers, assuming permission is allowed.

# Connect the two computers together using a Wireless or Wired network connection. ## Click Start, then right-click My Computer, and press Properties. ## Note down the computer name - you'll need it later. ## Then go into My Computer. ## Find the folder you wish to share, right click it, and click Sharing. ## Check the box that says words to the effect of "Share this folder". ## Give the folder a share name, something that reflects the content, and something you can remember. # On the computer which holds the files you want to share: ## In My Computer, Click Tools, and Map Network Drive. ### Host Name is the name of the other computer that you found out earlier. ### Share Name is the name of the folder that you shared, as you set up earlier. ## Type "\\<Host Name>\<Share Name>" (without the quotes), and press Next. ## It will then connect to the folder. # On the other computer:

Share permissions apply to a folder and its contents, but not to individual files. Chapter 8- Windows Resources on a Network- Jean Andrews-6th Edition
