I just recived my new Eee 1000HE and it's the most amazing netbook I've ever seen... but I have a problem.
Eee 1000HE: Atom, 140 GB HDD
Desktop PC: E7200, 372 GB
Most of the time, during college and being at home, I have a wireless network available. No matter which computer I'm at (Desktop or Laptop) I want my files available.
I tried using Windows 7's Homegroups, but everytime I want to access my files, I have to go into the homegroup, select which PC has the files, and sometimes it doesn't work, doesn't let me browse all of my files, etc. It only works on my Home network. Kinda clunky.
I want to be able to have a central "FILE" Server (probably making my Desktop PC this?) where I can store all of my files (documents, school, game savefiles, projects, etc.) and be able to access them from either the PC or Netbook with ease.
I also want to be able to select certain files to store offline (mostly a few videos, (low-spec) games (contained within their own folder), in case I need to rush and go somewhere there's not a wireless network.
I just don't want to to do! I'm very OCD and I love everything organized, but Windows just makes it so hard! :(
Anyone have suggestions?
