    Browser based file share access

    Hi all,

    Been trawling the web for about an hour now trying to figure out a solution for the following. We have a File server running 2012 that hosts a 'Common' share. This is accessed by staff via a mapped drive and is all fine and such. We've recently had a few changes at the top and they seem to be pushing for browser/cloud based access of files as well for 'ease' when not on domained machines. (they recently discovered drop box it would seem...).

    What's the best way for us to go about making this share available for viewing via web browser? Are there any Microsoft solutions to this?

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    This is not to be taken up lightly.
    There are considerations to be taken to comply with data protection and ensuring its secure to just the current employees of the school.

    Id be asking how much funds they have set aside for this whim and then quickly pass it up to the LEA or Academy directors to mull over.
