File Sharing: The Good Kind – WHS 27

Sharing files isn't this easy

Sharing files among multiple computers can be very useful. If you have a central location where you keep the files you can prevent duplicates from popping up. You’ll also always know where that one file is located.

There are two basic ways to share files: via hardware or software. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages.

On the hardware side of things you can use a NAS or a wireless router like the Belkin Wireless N+ 802.11n Router.

On the software side of things you either enable the built-in file sharing capabilities of your operating system (more on this in future episodes) or use a service like Dropbox.

Listen in as I discuss the various ways you can share files between multiple computers.
