Hello, I'm new here and I don't think I've saw anything on this specifically, furthermore I'm not even 100% positive this is where this should be posted. I've poured over these and similar forums to try to find a simple solution to my situation.
Ok, I have 5 computers, 3 desktops and 2 laptops. We will say PC 1 is the one I use as my home network and PC 2 is my personal machine. Both are running Windows 7 Ult. There are 2 drives on the network machine (PC 1) one of which I want to share with everyone (and currently am), and allow them to add and modify as it contains general family stuff. This includes people who come over and bring their laptops to connect to the wireless.
The other drive on PC 1 I want to share with ONLY PC 2 where PC 2 can add/modify files. The network (PC 1) machine no one physically uses and seldom even is seen as it's on most if not all the time and is used exclusively for my home network. The drive I share with PC 2 would preferrably not be visible to other systems in my network but not entirely necessary given none have access to it except PC 2. It wouldn't matter to me if it's password protected or not just so nobody can use it or view the files on it except for PC 2. The problem is people bring their laptops here with various operating systems and I still want to make sure that ONLY PC 2 has access. I'm looking for a solution even if I have to purchase 3rd party software to achieve this that of which I'm totally comfortable doing. Any help is greatly appreciated.
