FTP is a protocol designed for transferring files over a network and or the Internet. If you want to learn about setting up an FTP server in windows this is a really good tutorial.

Yep me too, in fact my new build which i will be putting together soon will definitely be running on Win7 aswell.

I know the OS very well at this point and can't imagine being as productive as i am on win7 on any other OS - Everything about it feels right. My current config has some issues with saving folder view options but one of these days i'll run a fix on that too, it's not a dealbreaker in any case.

Switching to Linux is not an option imo, it's not even binary-compatible. I've tried out and worked with Ubuntu, knoppix et al in the past but can't imagine using it as a private daily driver-type OS, it looks ugly imo and is anything but intuitive to use GUI-wise.

Some time back i also read something about a whitelist/filter program which can make even older OS's more secure (basically a secondary type of UAC which only lets user-whitelisted exe's run IIRC), totally forgot what it was called though but after 2020 and MSE definition updates being depreceated on Win7 i will maybe try it out, along with switching to a new malware live protection program.
