Today I wanted to share trough my home network some files with my father's laptop who happens to be running windows.

I remember there was a 'Sharing Options' in nautilus when right clicking on a folder but I must have removed some packaged that removed it as well.

How can I restore it?

This is how I resolved this:

I had removed the nautilus-share package.

Install via the software center

Now, I have reinstalled it now and it works.
