Sharing files over a network.

Smeg has the easiest Idea, however there is more than 1 way to skin a cat. By default windows grants you access to files on the same network in a domain environment so.... If you know someone with a network, and they will let you use their computer you could C$ to your pc and get the files. If you know the host name of your computer. Jump on your friends computer after connecting your laptop to their network and type \\enterhostnameofpchere\c$ you might get lucky and get a login msgbox asking for a username \ password. Good luck.

Note* This may not work if you do not have your Hard drive shared.
