Mac OS X uses Bonjour (multicast DNS) to publish shared folder service to local network. And, newly joined Mac OS X laptop automatically find shared storages very quickly and easily.
In case of Windows, I think NetBIOS BROWSE is used to publish shared folder service to Windows local network. But, from time to time, shared storage is not shown in Windows network browser.
Could you please explain how Windows can publish it's shared folder to local network? Any way to improve it?
