Good Day everyone! We are using Windows server 2019(on VMWARE ESXI), We have 100 computers across our network and all those computer already have one Folder name "Test", is there a way to make that folder(test) to be as shared using a GPO? I know we can create a shared folder via GPO but that would not have all the data that we need from that folder. For example we have Outlook folder on every PC and inside we keep PST file for that user. We want that Outlook folder to be as shared via GPO as making share one by one is time consuming. 

 

Do anyone have any idea how to tackle this problem?

 

Thanks in advance

Not sure what you mean with "I know we can create a shared folder via GPO but that would not have all the data that we need from that folder" Using this https://forsenergy.com/en-us/gpmc/html/cfa5db53-7fb1-499f-ac4d-7b5bcaaf7402.htm0Policy,New%2C%20and%.... you can create one which should be accessible for you.

What is your goal? Why do you need the share? You want to copy data from it to another location?
Do you have any more information for us?
