Windows 7: Remote file sharing

19 Aug 2011   #1

Windows XP
Remote file sharing

I am an Access Developer in Sacramento. I have been using LogMeIn to connect to clients remotely and also, on occasion, to send or receive files. I have discovered that Remote Assistance seems to do the same thing, however, what does seem to be missing is the ability to transfer files conveniently from one machine to another.

Is there something I'm missing or is this not a part of Remote Access? If it is not, is there something else that Windows 7 offers that is basically the same thing as file transfer in LogMeIn?

If not, is there some other way of looking at the problem that others use when they need to send or receive files from another computer. The files I am talking about are not extraordinarily large.

It is very convenient in LogmeIn to see my drives in one pane and the clients in another and to just be able to drag and drop.

Thank you

I use Teamviewer which has a better way I think to transfer files between clients. It's like logmein which I've tried but like the teamviewer a lot better.

I am doing this for clients so the personal won't work for me. The professional version is comparable in price to LogMeIn.

DropBox, as I remember it, does not really offer machine to machine copying. Rather, you upload to a place in the cloud and then download from the cloud.

Other Options? Nothing built into Windows 7? Since you're already connected via Remote Assistance, I would think file sharing would not be that hard.
