The easiest way to share public files with users on your home network, is to store the files in a shared folder on the server, and share the folder with a homegroup.
|To join a homegroup, a computer must be running the Windows 7 operating system.|
To enable HomeGroup members to access digital media
Open the server Dashboard
On the Dashboard Home page, click Set options for sharing.
On the Sharing Options page, click Share with Homegroup.
On the Change HomeGroup settings page, click Change settings.
For each shared folder, select the level of access that you want to allow users. For information about the different levels of access, see What level of access to shared folders should I allow?.
Click Apply or OK to save your settings.
