As a first step get rid of this one and make another folder with a unique
name, temp is not a good name since many applications might create a temp
folder and many cleaning applications clean folders when the name temp. In
short it is a name used many times as part of the core system in computing.
After creating a new Folder set it Sharing as per this instructions.
As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
allowed to be shared.
