I'm not very computer savvy, so these are probably stupid questions. I work with a Windows 10 PC at a small business which is part of a network. The files I work with are all saved on a "shared drive" on the server computer". Sometimes I save files to my Desktop or download files to my Downloads folder on the C:\ Drive, before saving an updated copy to the "shared drive" at the end of the week. When I right-click and view properties for C:\ and view the "Sharing" tab, it says this drive is "Not Shared". Questions: 1) Does "Not Shared" mean that C:\ is not a part of the company's network and can't be accessed /viewed from the other computers? 2) If it's not shared, does that mean that all the work I've been saving to C:\ hasn't been getting backed-up? 3) Sometimes during my break, I create and work on documents (I write a lot) that aren't company related. Before my break ends, I copy the file to a USB flash drive and delete the original from the C:\ drive. Sometimes I also access files on the USB flash drive, and save changes I make to them. Since all the work is happening on C:\ and the USB flash drive, will it show up on any network event logs / file audits? It was nothing illegal and I've done this a few times now without any incident, but I want to avoid any trouble this might cause. 4) If I download a PDF file off the internet and it gets saved to the "Downloads" folder on C:\, will it get automatically backed up to the company "shared drive", or would I have to manually make a copy to the "shared drive" to make sure that it gets backed up too? Thanks, T-Ruth
