Shared Folders

Shared folders are a great way of managing shared code which is used in many projects. They allow a single copy of the library to be accessed in many placed in your repository but also allow the library to be updated from any of those locations. A shared folder is made from a link between two folders (usually in two different streams). All files and folders within the shared folder are shared in the two places. Any changes to a file in one part of the shared folder will be replicated exactly to all the other parts.
