hi all,

Simple Sharepoint question with WSS3.0 on SBS2003 - I understand that representations of the files are stored inside the database, rather than as files themselves.

When our users navigate in windows via smb to \\sharepointname - these files show up in there, how does that work??

I'm going to move WSS3.0 to a new server, and need to know how to carry this functionality over....?

Thanks
