When I log in to the RWA, I cannot see the shared directory on the server.

All I can see is the Sharepoint share.

How can i make the shared directory available on RWA?

    found the solution:

    In Essentials dashboard -> on Get started TAB, make sure you are on setup -> Click add server folders
    Create a share -> make sure the "Hide this folder to RWA is unticked"

    I want to make a folder available in RWA that is already shared via the "Advanced Sharing" option in Windows Explorer. It does appear in the Dashboard => Storage => Server Folders but it doesn't appear in RWA.
