    I recently swapped my PC for a new Mac Pro. With my PC, I was set up to share a Quickbooks Company file with my Windows 8.1 laptop by hosting the file on my PC and accessing it as needed through the network from my laptop.

    With my new Mac, I installed Quickbooks on my virtual machine, but I'm having trouble sharing that file located on the C drive to the network. If I try to share that through the Sharing functionality via the Mac System Prefs, I'm unable to access/select the files on the C drive.

    Is this possible to share that file with the network? Using Dropbox is not a reliable solution since the conflicted copies are a constant source of frustration.
