Windows Home Server (WHS) has a lot of features. It lets you back up computers on your network, stream media and share files and folders. Here I’ll show you how to add shared folders to WHS.

To create a new shared folder, open Windows Home Server Console. Click on Shared Folders then Add on the upper left corner.

Now give the folder a name and description (optional) for the data you’re storing in it. Here I’m creating on for my backed up movies.

Decide if you want to enable Folder Duplication. The benefit of folder duplication is WHS duplicates the data between multiple hard drives. So, if one drive happens to fail, you won’t lose the duplicate on another drive.

Remember that enabling duplication will double the amount of space needed on the server. Because these are large movie files, I am not going to enable duplication. If you’re creating a shared folder for important documents, I highly suggest enabling it.

Next, set the access rights users on your network will have. Choose from Full, Read or None. Then click Finish.
