How do I connect computers RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is probably a silly question but I cannot find answer anywhere.  Instructions for program show two computers sitting side by side with no connection and no connection method is mentioned.  How do I connect computers?  USB?  Ethernet?  Wireless?  Want to have HDD on netbook and laptop contain same data in D: drive weather newest data is in netbook or laptop.  Am I evem trying to use correct program?

  • Hi -

    We are using what is called SMB as the connection between two computers. The way to do this would be to have the two computers on the same network( when from one computer you can "see" files on the other computer by opening up Windows explorer, this means that the two computers are not on the same network). In which case, you can follow instructions on "How to Create a Folder Pair" and you will figure it out. If you do not have two computers on the same network - then sorry that is a larger question which is not in the scope of this forum :(
