How do i share files between two win 7 machines

I have about 100GB of data that i need to transfer from one computer to another, and id rather not go buy an external HD. So here's what ive done so far hopefully someone can help me out. first i disabled the "Use Sharing Wizard option in the folder options. next i went to the folder that i want to share and selected the "Share this Folder" option and set the permissions to give "Everyone" "full control". then when i go to the computer that i want to transfer the files to and type in the path name in either "My computer" or the command prompt i get a message that says "Windows cannot access the file". so if someone can help me out i would greatly appreciate it. thanks.
