I have a several of Windows 7 workstations all with a local folder called "C:\TAP".  I would like to set this local folder to be shared on each workstation so that it can be access by any other workstation.  Is it possible to do this through a GPO setting?

Sure!

Just use Group Policy Preferences: Network Shares. This is under the computer configuration node.

It it looking that it is wanting to create a share to a network folder, not the local computer.  How do I set this one properly?
