Also I just to clarify so I can help better... which computer specifically do you want to access? do you want to send and retrieve from 7 to XP(meaning sit at your 7 machine and send files to the XP) or XP to 7
Hey sorry I've been out of town for the last few days.

So do I make this folder on the 7 machine, or the XP? Once I make it on one machine, how do I get it to show up on the desktop of the other machine?

I've made a folder on the Win 7 machines desktop, but when I go under the sharing folder it says Not Shared and the Share button is ghosted out?

I would like the Win 7 computer to be able to put files on & take them off the XP computer, I do not want the XP computer to be able to access the Win 7 computer other wise in case of viruses.

Ok so I was able to set up the folder on the desktop of my Win 7 computer to shared.

Now how do I find/get it on the desktop of the XP computer so we can begin to move files back & forth?

Do I need to create username & passwords for both computer to access this folder? If so, where?
