Win 7 file sharing stops working.

I leave my main computer on all the time and it seems that file sharing and home group connection stops functioning correctly after a few hours, IE the other machine is detected but can not connect. I reboot my machiens and they work fine, but I really can not reboot everytime I need to sync computers.

The main machine is Win 7 ultimate and the laptop is win 7 home premium.

Gaaa I miss Cisco network magic, never had any trouble when I could use it on all my machines....

Hi there,

Have you tried disabling the Hybernation on all your computers?
Hibernate - Enable or Disable

or....Turn off Hard disk after Idle or Never:
Hard Drive - Turn Off Hard Disk After Idle or Never

or... Disable the Power Management Mode of the ethernet adapters from Device Manager:
internet all of a sudden not connecting

It seems to stop working after I put the laptop to sleep and refusing to work until I reboot the main PC, what could the problem be? Also do you know of a program I could buy that would sycn folders and files across a network but not use the default windose network? I want to avoid these issues in the future ....

There a few options out there, here's a list of free synchronization utilities.

Free Cloud storage is another option - Dropbox or OneDrive.

Hope this helps.
