hi

i bought and i own a windows 7 pro 64bit and windows pro 10 64bit license

i don't want to transform my pc into a 100% server

but i would like to use my computer data like photos and videos and music to share with my phone or my laptop or my girlfriend apple laptop  when i 'm far from home

for example in another nation 

is there an easy way to do it?

do i need a free or paid software?

thanks

I think the cloud would be a better option for you...

 

Save your 7 and 10 licenses for a real desktop. ;)

Nailed it. it will mean that you're computer/server will need to be on all the time (or at least when you want to access the content)
