How can I copy Windows files from networked PC to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) drive [Click & Drag?]. The Mac OS drive is connected to Yosemite MacMini and used as Acronis backup for Yosemite.

Most of the files to be copied are .jpg and will be used with both Windows (Parallels) and Yosemite.

Just drag and drop.

Share the folder where the files are on Windows, then connect this share from MacOSX using path like \\windows\yourshare as example. After that drag and drop should be possible.
Enable file sharing on both the PC and the Mac.

Thanks to all who helped, permissions was big issue. However, I discovered Connect to Server which really served my  purpose which was to copy selected files from mounted drives in preparation for formatting Windows 7 disc.
