In Windows Server SBS 2011 in the Remote Web Access There is a section for the Shared Folder, I can see all the shared folders and files.

Recently I setup a Remote Web Access on Windows Server 2008, and I cant see the shared folder or find how to enable it in the Remote Web Access.

Thanks in advance.

The shared folders feature in RWA Was new in 2011. It does not exist in 2008 and cannot be added.

The best bet for sharing files and folders with SBS 2008 using web acess is to make use of Sharepoint.

When accessing Remote Web Workplace there is an option to access your "internal Web Server" which is Sharepoint.  You can also access directly with https://remote.YourDomain.abc:987
Sharepoint is a whole other product which is built into SBS that allows web sharing and collaboration of files, calendars, lists, and more. It is very customizable using the tools provided under Administrative Tools.
