To share your folders with others, Just Click “My folders” in the navigation pane on the left of your docs, select the folder you would like to share, Click the “share” drop-down menu and select “Invite people“.


Enter the e-mail addresses that you would like to permit access for your folders and Click Send to send them an e-mail with a link to your folders.
Click “Add without sending Invitation“, if you don’t want to send them the notification.

You need to note a thing while doing this, when you share a folder, the new permissions are pushed to all sub-folders and docs within the folder. Normally this happens quickly, but occasionally, it could take a couple of minutes.
