Windows 7: Remote access--networked drive?

Remote access--networked drive?

MS Skydrive allows for remote access of the files on 'my' computer. I'd like to be able to view certain files on my wife's networked machine coming in through my computer in a crunch. Is there such an app that's safe (good security), solid and reasonable?
