    Folders show as 'Shared'. How to disable Sharing?


    Seems some system folders are showing the 'Shared' icon in the lower-left of the window.

    Does anyone know how to disable file and folder sharing across the OS?

    (P.S. Think I've asked this before but nobody provided a solution that yielded any results).
