Access or remove shared folders on GO

The user can access a shared folder using the selected credential. The credential is not necessarily a domain one.

  1. Start Core.
  2. Click Network Sharing.
  3. Select the folder you want to access or unshare.
  4. Right-click and choose one of the following options from the context menu:
    • Access sharing
    • Delete sharing
The folders accessed by Core are registered and can be reaccessed due to the cache of credentials managed by Windows. These folders won't be mapped as a drive.

Access shared folders outside of GO

Once authenticated, Windows creates a local cache with network access allowing the folder to be viewed without GO Endpoint Manager.
