I'm running a virtual machine with Server 2003. I have installed alfresco 3 on it, and want to set up a shared folder for our internal network. According to the userguide it should be fairly straightforward, however, the folder it telsl me to map, doesn't exist. I've been looking for a folder that contains the documents i have uploaded for test purposes within the Alfresco folders, and they don't exists. At least not anywhere I see them.  I am a beginner to Alfresco, so it could just be something silly I'm overlooking. Please advice.

Many thanks.

On the server go to \\<server name> and see what shares are available.
Check the share you copied your file to and see if it is there.

If this is working then bring up Computer Manager and check the shares under System Tools / Shared Folders / Shares and make sure that the physical path is configured to where it is supposed to go.

If you are having trouble with the path ... just browse through the server to the folder specified in the directions, right click on he folder and select Sharing and Security (well, this is the reference on my workstation, you can also get to the tab by selecting Properties from the context menu) and then share out the folder when you know you have the correct one selected.
