Wondering if anyone knows a good software to use to transfer files from computer to computer. Ive tried setting up the ethernet transfers as well as homegroup back a while ago, but it never stays consistant. If anyone knows a good software to transfer files to and from (download on both computers, configure, then drag and drop) PLEASE TELL ME THE NETWORK DEVICES AND NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE IS GIVING ME A HEADACHE!!!

 

 

 

 

 

thanks.

Just share a folder on the target device, then move the files to it from the source device. That'll likely be your best option.

Alternatively, you could get an external hdd/ssd or a flash drive and copy files to that, then to the other PC.

Uhm... windows sharing? 

 

Right click on folder to share, click "properties". Click the "sharing" tab. Click "share", give the share a name. Now when you go back to the sharing tab it'll give you an address like \\computerName\shareName

 

On computer 2 (on the same network). Right click on the "My computer" icon. Click "add network drive"

 

Type in the address from above \\computerName\shareName. Check "Sign in with different credentials" then enter the username and password from the other computer. 

 

Now you have access to that folder on the computer.

I have tried that, its just extremely slow, and requires 2 transfers. pc to hard drive then hard drive to pc

Then set up a proper network (homegroups don't count) it really isn't that hard

You use windows explorer to move a file between computers with a shared homegroup folder..........

Literally just drag the file from one PC to the other.

Alright then... I'm on my work computer so ignore the domain parts if visible...

 

Open Network and Sharing center > Change advanced sharing settings.

Make sure both computers are on the Private profile. Make sure that the settings are set to this.image.png.64c71f5a9ba5207621390a183b752e8a.png

 

Create a folder on a drive on either one. Right click > Properties. Click sharing. Then click Advanced Sharing.

Click Share this folder. Click Permissions. Check full control under allow.

 

Click security. Make sure that the account you want to use has read, read/write, or write, access to the folder you want to share, your preference.

 

Open file explorer > network

You should then see your computer. Double click it. Enter the account credentials of that computer. If you don't want to enter account credentials, that involves editing local GPO to have access authorized through the Guest account, granted you have a Windows version that is Pro or higher.

You've achieved network folder sharing and can share files at the speed of your local network, be it 10Mbit, 100Mbit, or 1 Gbit.
