Windows 7: Share entire drives

Share entire drives

I'm trying to turn a desktop into a media server. So far I was able to set up VNC, (s)FTP, SSH. All I need now is to

1. Be able to access it from anywhere on the internet, and port forwarding doesn't seem to work...

2. Be able to share entire drives as a network drive. One as 'Backup' and one as 'Media'. AKA, have it show up under "ip/backup" or "ip/media", if that makes sense. If possible, have the Media one shared as a media server, and the other as just a network drive.

Not sure about turning a PC into a server but VPN's are good for online access.

This link might help for the drive sharing.
