How To Mutually Share Hard Drive Betwean Computers?

    Question

  • ME AND MY FRIEND WANT TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS EACH OTHER COMPUTER'S HARD DRIVE FILES REMOTELY AT ANY TIME WITHOUT HAVING TO CONNECT EVERY TIME. WE ARE IN THE DIFFERENT CITIES, AND OUR COMPUTERS ARE ON-LINE THE WHOLE TIME, BUT, WE HAVE DYNAMIC IP ADDRESSES. SO, WE DO NOT JUST WANT TO SEE WHAT IS ON OTHER COMPUTERS HARD DRIVE, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO FOR EXAMPLE WRITE DELETE OR EVEN INSTALL PROGRAMS ON FRIENDS COMPUTER, REMOTELY FROM MY OWN. BUT WE DO NOT WANT A REMOTE DESKTOP, SO THAT I FOR EXAMPLE GO TO HIS COMPUTER AND WORK THERE. WE JUST WANT TO SHARE HARD DRIVE ON SUCH WAY THAT I AM ABLE TO USE HIS HARD DRIVE LIKE IT IS IN MY OWN COMPUTER. I HAVE WINDOWS SERVER 2008, AND HE HAVE WINDOWS 8 OPERATING SYSTEMS. IS IT POSSIBLE TO ACHIVE COMPLETE AND MUTUAL HARD DISK SHARING? AND HOW, IF IT IS? THANX. :P

  • No.

    You can share files with a service like google drive or microsoft skydrive or something like that. Installing programs is not possible, and to be honest: why do you even want this? Why should you even want to be able to install programs on each others computer.

    What you ask and the way you describe it sounds weird. As if you are trying to take over your friends machine without him knowing...

  • Hi,

    I agree with that to use OneDrive to sync your shared folders.

  • WELL, WE DOES THAT.

    WE CONFIGURED ONE NON-MICROSOFT REMOTE DESKTOP PROGRAM ON SUCH WAY THAT I CAN TAKE OWER HIS COMPUTER WHEN EVER I WANT, AND HE CAN TAKE OVER MY COMPUTER WHEN EVER HE WANTS. THE OTHER PERSON DOES NOT HAVE TO BE ON COMPUTER TO ALLOW THAT. IT IS CONNECTED WITHOUT ANY WARNING. BUT WE BOTH AGREED ON SUCH ABILITY.

    BUT, FOR THAT I NEED TO LOG IN ON REMOTE DESKTOP EVERY TIME I WANT TO CONNECT.

    SOMETIMES WHEN I JUST WANT TO USE HARD DRIVE, I DO NOT WANT TO LOG IN.

    I  WANT SOMETHING LIKE IP HARD DRIVE. SO THAT I CAN USE HIS HARD DRIVE LIKE IT IS IN MY OWN COMPUTER, WITHOUT HAVING TO LOG ON ON REMOTE DESKTOP TO TRANSFER FILES BETWEAN COMPUTERS.

    I WANT THIS BECAUSE, SOMETIMES I NEED MORE SPACE.

    I HAVE RECORDED A LOT OF PORN MOVIES ON MY HARD DRIVE, AND SINCE MY HARD DRIVE IS RELATIVELY SMALL, HE OFFERED ME HIS HARD DRIVE.

    SO, SOMETIMES, I UPLOAD SOME FILMS THERE, BUT, I HATE THE NEED TO LOG IN EVERY TIME ON HIS COMPUTER.

    I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS HIS HARD DRIVE LIKE IT IS IN MY OWN COMPUTER, SO, THAT I CAN WRITE PROGRAM WHICH AUTOMATICALLY MOVES FILES TO HIS HARD DRIVE, WITHOUT ME HAVING TO DO IT MANUALLY.

    THAT IS WHY I AM ASKING. :P

    IF YOU ARE THINKING THAT I MIGHT USE IT FOR HACKING, NO, IT IS NOT TRUE. HE ALOWES ME TO USE HIS COMPUTER WHEN EVER I WANT. ;)
    BTW, HE IS HACKER, BUT, HE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO SET UP THIS CONNECTION, HAHA, WIERD, HA? :)

    ANYWAY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER. :P

  • WELL, GOOGLE DRIVE OR SKY DRIVE OR ONE DRIVE, THAT ARE APLICATIONS WITH WHICH I HAVE TO FIRST UPLOAD FILES TO SERVER, AND THAN HE NEEDS TO DOWNLOAD FILES FROM SERVER, OR HE UPLOAD AND ME DOWNLOAD, DEPENDING WHO IS SENDING TO WHOME.

    FOR EXAMPLE IF ONE PORN MOVIE HAS THE SIZE OF 6-7 GB, AND I WANT TO SAVE 3-4 MOVIES TO HIS HARD DRIVE, WELL, FIRST, MOST OF THOSE ONLINE SHARING PROGRAMS WOULD NOT DO IT, BECAUSE FILE WITH SIZE 6GB IS TOO BIG FOR SOME SHARING SERVICES, AND IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR ME TO UPLOAD IT, AND THAN AGAIN A LONG TIME FOR HIM TO DOWNLOAD IT.

    I WANT DIRECT CONNECTION, SO, WITHOUT HAVING SERVER TO SAVE FILES.

    BY THE WAY, IT IS DEFINETELY NOT RECOMENDED TO UPLOAD PORN MOVIES, ESPECIALLY OUR OWN (IN WICH ARE WE) ON ANY SERVER, SINCE, WHAT IF SOMEONE CAN ACCESS OUR PROFILE?

    FOR EXAMPLE, IF GOOGLE HAS PASSWORDS FOR ALL OF ACCOUNTS ON GOOGLE, AND SOMEONE IS THERE LOOKING WHAT WE UPLOAD, THAT WOULD NOT BE NICE.

    IF ANYONE SEES THAT.

    THAT IS WHY WE WANT DIRECT CONNECTION.

    OKEY THEN, IF THERE IS NO WAY FOR DIRECT HARD DRIVE SHARRING, THAN I WILL CONTINUE TO LOGGING IN ON HIS COMPUTER AND THAN UPLOADING MOVIES TO HIS HARD DRIVE.

    THIS IS ALSO DIRECT CONNECTION, BUT JUST, I NEED TO LOG IN EVERY TIME.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

    BYE. :P
