    Re: Difference between Shareing/Mapping a Folder/Drive

    Roughly:
    Sharing makes a folder available to be accessed from other computers
    Mapping is the process that links you to a shared folder so you can see its contents. It appears as another drive letter on your PC

    So, a folder can be shared without being mapped, but cannot be mapped without first being shared
