Accessing data and working remotely has become more important with today's mobile workforce and response to covid-19. Given this, it makes sense that more and more technologies are being designed to allow access to data from more devices and locations accross the world. This is what Work Folders in Windows Server 2019 allows you to do. It is a way to securely publish access to files and folders to the multiple device types that users may use. These files are accessed via a web listener that is configured on the Work Folders file server, which enables this data to be accessed from inside or outside the corporate network, from both domain-joined and non-domain-joined computer systems.
Configuring a full-fledged Work Folders environment with all the different moving parts and components can be difficult for some to setup. In this How To, we will focus on the steps that are needed on the file server in order to make it ready for hosting Work Folders. Once you are setup with Work Folders you will realize the many benefits that it can provide your business. In later How To's, will show you how to use Group Policies to assist in using Work Folders.
