Simple File Sharing

Simple File Sharing

A Windows XP file management option that does not allow file sharing to be configured on a user-by-user basis. If a folder or file is made sharable, everyone on the network has access to it. When Simple File Sharing (SFS) is disabled, individual user configuration is available. Starting with Windows Vista, Simple File Sharing is called "Password Protected Sharing," but has the reverse orientation as follows:

 XP Simple File Sharing = on
 Vista Password Protected Sharing = off


 XP Simple File Sharing = off
 Vista Password Protected Sharing = on
