- [Voiceover] This lesson looks at Work Folders…and what you need to know about Work Folders…to prepare for the 697 exams.…That's why it's called understanding Work Folders.…It's one of those features that is only available…in an enterprise environment yet it is included…specifically in the list of objectives for the 697.…So we'll spend a few moments with it here.…It sounds like it refers to every folder…that might be used for work,…but actually a Work Folder is a special folder…created on a Server 2012 machine called a sync share.…
That sync share is then synchronized…to a local directory on the client machine.…Now the significance of this is that it goes beyond…just Windows 10.…Sync shares can be accessed by nondomain-joined devices…that are owned by domain users.…So in practical terms, what we're talking about here…is a scenario where you have a user who is…part of the domain who wants to access work files…from their tablet or from their iPad.…
Which is not joined to the domain.…So you don't need to go through the whole process…
