Share the original folder, reboot, then unshare it. Disconnect all laptops/pc's from the network.

because when i download something from the internet it saves automatically to my download folder, i would like it if it was automatically shared over my network so i can access it with my laptop without first having to manually share it with EVERYONE read/write. Not a huge deal but it used to work like that before
