Private groups allow you to share full text copies of papers and other associated files. Note that when you move items within your library between your main library and a private group, you will need to be cautious about annotated pdf files. By default, Mendeley assumes your library copy annotations are private and will only move a "clean" copy of pdf files to the private group. You can export a copy of the pdf with annotations to you harddrive and load it into the private group entry if you wish.
