    sharing a folder\drive remotely

    Hi all

    I'm currently working on a research project for university. we will soon begin working with a deep learnimg package to determine if we can teach it to analyze a photograph.

    As this is a group assignment other members of the group assignment and we do not have one computer we can all access simultaneously im wondering if there is any way i could share a folder on my desktop PC (running windows 8.1) and allow them to have remote access to that one folder from their own PC's (without using remote desktop to give them access to my entire computer, which is something i definitely do not want)
    anyone know if this is possible?
