[icon-discuss] Re: File sharing question

I understand the security, but still I feel that I should have the option with a strong warning instead of not have the option at all?

Kevin,

For security reasons, sharing an entire drive is not recommended. In fact, if you try to do so on your computer, you'll get a message to that effect, and a prompt that asks you if you really want to do that. If the whole drive is shared, all the folders and sub-folders are also shared unless you specifically disable file sharing for each sub-folder. This would be a real pain if you had several sub-folders.

There seems to be no way to share entire harddrives, I also find this a limitation, may have to look at the config files but that's not for this list. It might be insightful if Jenny or someone official could say why an entire drive can't be shared from the menu.

Hi,

Is there a way to share the entire hard drive? I can share a particular folder, but when I hit the Menu key when pointed at just the hard drive, there are no options available. It'd be nice to be able to share the whole hard drive, rather than having, say, one share for library, another for music, etc.
