    How To Transfer Files Between Windows 8 And Windows 7 PC

    Post  gammer121™ on 9th November 2012, 08:38

    This tutorial will show you how you can network windows 8 and a windows 7 pc to transfer files, lets get started shall we ...

    We’ll show you how you can share files between a Windows 8 PC and a Windows 7 PC by sharing a folder on the Windows 7 machine and then mapping to that folder in Windows 8 as a network drive.

    First, you need to share a folder on your Windows 7 PC. You could just share your C: drive and have access to all folders from Windows 8. However, we recommend you create a special folder for transferring files. That way, you limit access to your Windows 7 PC.

    Create a new folder somewhere on your Windows 7 PC, right-click on it, and select Properties from the popup menu.

    On the Properties dialog box, click the Sharing tab and then click Advanced Sharing.

    On the Advanced Sharing dialog box, click the Share this folder check box to turn on sharing for this folder. Then, click Permissions.

    On the Permissions dialog box, you’ll see Everyone listed in the Group or user names list. You can leave that is there are other users on your Windows 7 PC who you want to have access to this folder from the Windows 8 PC. If that’s the case, click the Full Control check box in the Allow column to give full read and write privileges and click OK.

    However, we will also show you how to restrict access on the Windows 8 PC to your user account only on your Windows 7 PC. Click on Everyone in the Group or user names list and click Remove.

    Click Add. On the Select Users or Groups dialog box, type your username for the Windows 7 PC in the Enter the object names to select box. Click Check Names.

    The Windows 7 computer name is added to your username. Click OK.

    You’ll now see your username in the Group or user names list. Select it and click the Full Control check box in the Allow column to give yourself full read and write privileges for the folder and click OK.

    You are returned to the Advanced Sharing dialog box. Click OK to close it.

    Then, click Close to close the Properties dialog box for the folder.

    Before mapping to your new shared folder on your Windows 7 PC, you need to know either the IP address of your Windows 7 PC or the computer name. To check the IP address for your PC, open the Start menu, type “cmd” (without the quotes) in the search box, and press enter when the “cmd.exe” link is highlighted in the results. At the command prompt, type the following command:

    ipconfig /all

    You’ll see a list of connections display. It may be a long list, depending on how many LAN and wireless connections you have. Look through the list until you find an IP address for the appropriate adapter. We are using Windows 8 in a virtual machine using VMware, so the IP address we need to use is in the “Ethernet adapter VMware Network Adapter VMnet8” section.

    However, if you are running Windows 8 on a physical machine that is connected wireless to your home network, along with your Windows 7 machine, you’ll probably find the IP address you need to use in the “Wireless LAN adapter” section.

    To check the name of your Windows 7 PC, right-click on Computer on the Start menu and select Properties from the popup menu.

    Your computer name is found in the Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings section of the System window that displays.

    NOTE: Make a note of both the computer name and the IP address for your Windows 7 PC. Even if you want to use the computer name, you should know the IP address in case using the computer name doesn’t work.

    That's it, all you will ever need to network them.
