Network share is a location on your network that you can access. The files are stored on a different computer. If you do not have a network set up in the office you work at, then you won't need this section.
In order for you to save data on a network share, you will need permission. The person in charge of the computer has the ability to add users. If you know of a public share and you cannot access it, then tell your administrator or the person in charge of that computer to give you permission.
Whenever you tell someone a network location, you tell them the name by the path. I'll use the previous sentence as an example. Computername is the name of the computer, then the next word is a folder name. The next name is also a folder name. Finally, data.doc is the name of the file. So, the location of data.doc is in a folder named John that is under a folder called public under the computer computername. When you say a path verbally, you just leave a pause after each word or say slash between the words. In the written form, it looks like this, \\computername\public\John\data.doc.
When people share documents, they save them on their own computer and put it in a folder that they made public. Or, a co-worker might have data saved on their computer. If you don't want to deal with the floppy disks, then you can retrieve the data from the network if they make the folder public.
