I want a Windows 7 folder (MacMini Files) to be available on OSX Mountain Lion desktop at OSX boot. As the Windows 7 PC may not be on, or in sleep mode, at OSX boot I also want the MacMini Files folder to be available when WIN 7 PC comes online. Sort of like DropBox.

How do I make this happen?

Hi Marspath,

   To network your files and have them available on the desktop every time you logon, you have to do a few things. Please perform the following:

(1) Share your file from your PC
(2) Connect to this file from your Mac by pressing  "CMD" & "K". This will open the window box that you can type in your SMB address or IP. (It should ask for your credentials. Also, if the option to remember your information comes up, say yes.)
(3) Once you are connected navigate to the PC file on your Mac and then drag it to the desktop on your Mac.
(4) Open System Preferences/Users & Groups/Click on your user/Click the "Login Items" tab
(5) Now drag the folder from your desktop to the "Login Items" window.

Now every time you logon this folder will automatically appear on your desktop.

Hope this helps.

Works just fine, as long as PC is on line before Mac - no big deal, just boot order.
