A shared folder is a special type of workspace that enables you to share the contents of a folder in your Windows file system across all computers on which you have your account, and with other users by invitation.

When you invite people to join a shared folder, they select a folder for sharing on their computers. All members of a shared folder have access to its contents (files and subfolders).
