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.
