Download Windows File Server

A file server is a computer responsible for the storage and management of data in a central location. The specifications of a file server would normally consist of a large hard drive, a high CPU rate and decent amount of RAM. However, this may vary depending on the scale of how many requests the computer will be required to handle at once. Network clients can access these files, therefore saving them from having to physically transfer data from one computer to another. Users are able to access files and applications at the same time.

The administrator can configure the machine to be a dedicated file server; which would mean that the machine will only be used as a file server. Also, a non-dedicated file server; which would allow the file server to be used simultaneously as a workstation. File servers provide the ability to back up data with ease as everything is stored on one computer. Quotas can be set so that each user will have a certain amount of space on which he/she can save data.
