I tried. I actually put down time to do it- no distractions, no games, nothing.
I gave it a shot last night before bed, and had issues all around following several tutorials. Things that needed to be activated never showed an option to do so, preferences file code had errors, Apache wouldn't run correctly... a slew of bad happenings. I got all excited, and the process seemed logical, and then it was all downhill from there.
I'm still stuck now. I put a hard drive from a friend's wrecked Dell PC into the "server" and formatted it, and the root of the drive is read/writable over the network by Window's built in File Sharing, but I already had that on C...
I also gave an AHK script a try, just to kind of do it semi-automatically (copy to folder manually, AHK sees files, copies to server, other PC sees new files in server folder, copies to local disk, deletes from server), and that didn't work. I need to brush up on my AHK as is, but that gave me heck too. Refused to copy a file. ONE file. A plain text file! I can not win.
Is there anything user stupid out there? At this point Window's File Sharing
is still the fastest and easiest method. That's a first for something in Windows being the easiest thing I can find (that works)...
