Well, you posed the question, "Should I deploy Shared Folders or Team Folders to manage content?"
I am afraid that's where you lost me.
I have lots of folders in my drop box but where does deploying them fit in? What is deploying them involve and why would I want to do that. In what way does the content need managing and what would that achieve? I'd just like to leave it there for future referrence really so I can access it and send it out if necessary. What else can I do with it?
Perhaps there is a drop box for idiots book which I should buy?
