Of course. I do this all the time.

Please review my article on folder sharing

Yes, right-click the folder, select Properties, select the Sharing tab, set sharing options / permissions.

Do they have be win 7 pro or will any version of win 7 share?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
