Whether you are using Windows 7 in a domain, a workgroup, or a homegroup, few aspects of the operating system are more important than file security and file sharing. File security and file sharing are so interconnected that talking about one without talking about the other is difficult. File security protects important data on your systems by restricting access, and file sharing enables you to share data so that it can be accessed by other users.
