Mounting directories in windows

I need to copy a file from server A to server B and both run  MS operating systems. I can ping the server A with the server name. I need to mount a directory on server B and then copy a 700 MB export to server B from server A. Creating a mount seems to be the easiest way to do this. Please could someone advise on sharing a folder, and them mounting it. Thanks in anticipation.

It is probably not necessary to 'mount' the drive, you can simply create a drive mapping, but if you would like to mount it, good instructions can be found at the following link as to how to mount the drive and remove it if you need to:;en-us;307889&sd=tech
I agree with Rob on mapping instead of mounting.  On Server A you should just right click the folder you want to share and click the sharing menu option and setup the share within there.  Then on Server B you could click Start, Run and then type \\Server A.  That should open the shared folders and allow you to copy the files you need.  If you want to map a drive then right click My Computer on Server B and choose the Map Network Drive option.

If you get access denied messages then you need to make you are in the same workgroup or domain and also that you have the correct permissions on the share.
