I need to know the easiest way to transfer files between my main computer and a laptop. The network is all set up and works well with Windows Easy Transfer, this seems rather a heavy handed way to do what should be simple?

In simple terms, if the folders/printers that you want to have available over the network have been set as "shared" in their Properties, they should be available to all networked computers in "Network" (My Network Places).

Files on the remote PC can be copied, pasted, moved, edited etc in exactly the same was as if they were in the local PC.
