Allow a Windows app to share application data between users

This folder is available through the Windows.Storage API. If you disable this policy a Windows app can’t share app data with other instances of that app. If this policy was previously enabled any previously shared app data will remain in the SharedLocal folder.

    The policy is located under of Local Group Policy Editor.
