I am installing a 1.5 TB drive onto a DELL precision computer.  I need to share out the entire drive (all the disk space).  Is there any difference in performance in sharing the entire drive out or creating a folder and sharing that out?

None at all. The limiting factors are the speed of the drive and the speed of the network, not the position of the share.
