  1. Im having some problems sharing certain files to the network here on our office. The thing is when i try to share a folder it cant be spotted or viewed by anyone. I guess i dont share the folder properly. Its not only rightclicking on the folder and ticking in the share folder bars i presume? What else needs to be done?

    There's several variables the can come into play but let's just start here
    1) Make sure all the computers are in the same workgroup
    2) Make sure all the computers can "see" each other in "Windows Networking" (i.e. they are all "visible")

    See this post

    > Then jump to Testing Network Visibility
