I want to learn more about setting up file shares

Applies to: Nerdio For Azure (NFA) and Nerdio Private Cloud (NPC)

There are two ways to set up file sharing in Nerdio:

1. File sharing using FS01 server:

File sharing works exactly as it does in a traditional Windows network environment.  FS01 is typically used as a file server. You create folders on D: drive, set NTFS permissions on them as you normally would and then share them out.  This is all done while connected to FS01 via RDP:



You can set the NTFS permissions to allow certain groups or users to have various level of access available on these folders and then you can manage group membership in NAP:


By default, there are a few shares already set up. You can view the way they are configured and replicate that. Note that unlike NFA Professional and Enterprise accounts, adding FS01 server is optional for NFA Core accounts. 

2. File sharing using OneDrive:

OneDrive also works just like it does in a traditional environment.  It is for PERSONAL use, not to be used on a file server.  You can install OneDrive on any desktop as the user who’ll be using it by downloading it from Microsoft and typing in the credentials.  Once configured, any files stored in OneDrive will be available online and other devices.
