    now that I managed to wirelessly connect 2 computers, I can see my files on the other computer. If I want my grandkids pictures on both computers, do I have to copy them out of the "shared" folder onto the computer I am on to have them when the connection is closed? I only connect to the internet with one computer without activating the wireless connections between the computers. So when I want to email a picture to relatives overseas, they are not there. What am I doing wrong? :confused:
    If I want to backup my appointments onto the other computer, do I have to move it to that computers folders? (I like Anytime Organizer). Any information would be appreciated how to do this

    Yes, to have multiple copies of files, whether for convenience or for backup, you must make a copy. :)

    So for the pictures either fire up your network when you want to email or else copy them ahead of time. And for the appointments, copy (don't "move") them to the other computer. I am not familiar with the application; if you don't know where the file(s) is, maybe the application has an "export" capability, which is another way of making a backup.

    thanks TN, I am going to try that, copying one pictures out of "shared" to "My pictures" folder on the other computer, once they show on the other computer in "shared" I hope I understood you ok.
