I am using Remote Desktop in Ubuntu 2012.10 to connect to Windows Server 2012.

I configured /home/nico/myshare in the Share folder field, last item below:

enter image description here

Once connected, where to access myshare on the Windows side?

I am sure myshare is used somehow, because when I remove it Remote Desktop crashes.

In the screenshot you provided the Share Folder is disabled which likely means it cannot be enabled. –  Ramhound Feb 6 '13 at 11:01
@Ramhound: That was an image from the web. I replaced with an actual screenshot I just took. –  Nicolas Raoul Feb 6 '13 at 11:09
Have you setup a share folder on Windows? –  Ramhound Feb 6 '13 at 12:08
I just want to access the myshare folder from Windows... so I guess I don't need to setup ashare folder on Windows, right? Or do you have any documentation proving otherwise? That could be an answer. –  Nicolas Raoul Feb 7 '13 at 2:31
