Correct - just regular FTP service running on my PC

Not a problem for me - I used to run FTP server on XP before i 'down graded' to Vista Premium - still have the folder on my PC

Might be a deal breaker for me upgrading - but it's all academic if Win 7 premium doesn't run FTP service

Simply by installing FileZilla (or similar program, I believe IE works as one as well) you can access FTP...
Windows (well certainly all professional versions since Win 2000) have built-in FTP service (and HTTP service) - just activate the service and it becomes FTP/HTTP server - dedicate which folders are accessible (and password) and you can access those files from anywhere you have web access

but I have considered 3rd party app and maybe that's easiest solution - Filezilla might be the answer

You want to basically set your computer up as a server, correct? First issue will be ISP and if they block port 80 (there are ways around that). Second is to set up your files properly (need to be set up to be shared).

FileZilla Server? There's a client and a server available for download.

Yes, I forgot about that. I don't know if it is free though. Also not sure if there is a windows version of it or not.
