Will Windows allow access to anything dangerous when sharing the C drive?
Posted on 2011-03-17
Running a piece of software that will be hosted on a Windows 7 machine (it will be acting as the server) and shared among a handful of workstations. The instructions for the software call for sharing the C drive on the machine acting as the server with everyone (checked with the software people and verified that's what they intended). Tried it on a test machine, doesn't seem like a huge deal because Windows 7 still seems to block access to the major folders (windows, program files, etc). However, still thought I'd check with the experts and see if there is anything they can access potentially damaging to the Windows 7 machine acting as the server (besides obviously the data, but that's shared on the network anyway). Any thoughts there?
