Chapter 12. Networking > File Sharing

12.2. File Sharing

In File Sharing, you can summon the icon for a folder or disk attached to another computer on the network, whether it's a Mac or a Windows PC.) It shows up on your screen underneath your own hard drive, as shown in Figure 12-2. At this point, you can drag files back and forth, exactly as though the other computer's folder or disk is a gigantic CD you've inserted into your own machine.

Figure 12-2. The whole point of file sharing: to bring icons for the hard drives or folders from other Macs and PCs onto your own screen—like the Jenn's iMac HD icon shown here. By dragging icons back and forth, you can transfer your work from your main Mac to your laptop; give copies of your documents to other people; create a "drop box" that collects submissions from various authors for a publication; and so on.
