I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I always use Windows Pro when sharing like this.

To Clarify - can shares be set up on non Win 7 "Pro" machines ?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Probably, but it is BEST to use Windows PRO as the machine to share out folders / files.
