This is a very basic networking question.
Basically, my new "super computer" is Win 7, of course. My "backup" pc is my last one running Vista, SP2.
All I want to really do at this point it use it as a backup server. I was gonna just make my backup using Acronis true image, put it in the shared folder, and move it over, but I'm not doing something wright. File too big (300gb). I am able to share the public folder at this point, but that's about it.
If both were Win 7, it would be easy to just set up a homegroup. I've set up home networks before, what am I missing? I've got them both wired to my AT&T uverse router, btw. Thanks.
I know I can buy Windows Home Server, and I may end up doing so, but my priority now is to just get an image of my main computer on a different system in case something happens to it.
