Access Drives From Remote Windows Computers

when you have to share documents between two different Windows machine, you can either use an FTP site, email documents around, or use a shared folder. I hate all of the above options, especially when I am the administrator to both machines and I am currently logged into both computers. In the case where you are administrator to both machines, you can just open Windows Explorer and type the following to get access to the whole C:\ drive.

\\REMOTE-COMPUTER\c$\

Just replace REMOTE-COMPUTER with the actual name of the remote computer you are trying to connect.

I was surprised that a senior developer didn’t know this so I thought I share it with other folks.
