K here is a little tutorial i fashioned quickly so you now exactly where it is.

First you go to this place.


Next after you click that a screen like this one will pull up. you then click on the view tab.


After that you need to scroll the the very bottom and unchech the simple file sharing option.

After that you need to have that folder allow you to acess it by giving you more permissions to it.

Right click the folder you want to acess and click properties.


Then a window like this will pop up and click the securities tab. Then give yourself the abilites of contoling this folder by checking options. Like full control, read and write.
