    Title says it all really, is there any way you can set a particular 'non administrator' account in windows xp pro to enable folder sharing?

    The situation we have at work is that we have normal user accounts set up for our users, but they need to be able to share folders across the network.

    If anyone knows how to achieve this it would be very helpful to know.

    Cheers.

    not positive, but you should be able to find it in control panel -> administrative tools -> local security policy if youre in a workgroup. If youre in an active directory domain, group policy is a better way of deploying it.

    They are local user accounts and all the Pc's belong in the same workgroup. I couldn't seem to find anything that looked like file sharing in local security policy though.
