Hi,

 

For convenience, since you are connected to the Internet, it will be easy for you to just use online sync services like:

Dropbox (dropbox.com)

SkyDrive (skydrive.live.com)

Google Drive (drive.google.com/start)

These services are free, and you will only be charged if you find a need for a greater storage aside from the basic that is provided. By using such services, you can share gigabytes of files between your laptop and PC, and also easily share files even to your other devices like your smartphones and tablets that run on iOS, Android and Windows.

Hi, Yes It is Possible. First you have to make sure that your PC and Laptop have the same subnet, appropriate IP Settings and belong to same work Group. In setting work group you have to:

Open Properties
  1. Right click on MY COMPUTER
  2. PROPERTIES
  3. Computer name
  4. Change name
  5. Assign the same workgroup

Make sure that both computers have same workgroup

Change propeties

 

If you are using Windows 7 this is how to set workgroup:

Open Properties properties
  1. Right click on “COMPUTER” then “PROPERTIES
  2. Click “CHANGE SETTINGS”
  3. Click “CHANGE”
  4. Type the work group name.

Make sure that both pc have same workgroup.
