Small office, 6 people, which is overkill for Windows Server. Instead we use Windows Pro and utilise the public folder for sharing files. Shared files are from Windows specific apps such as accounting programs, etc...
Several times, after a Windows 10 Update, I've noticed windows has:
- turned OFF Public Folder sharing
- turned ON Password Protected Sharing
this results in the files not being shared. If I'm around it's trivial to mitigate these changes, but others aren't so I.T. literate
My question is, is there a better way to share files on Windows 10 Pro which isn't affected by Updates? For example, enable the guest account using the CMD prompt, set up the share manually and cross fingers windows update doesn't mess with it? This way presumably, it doesn't matter whether windows turns on / off public folder or password protected sharing?
