1) Lenovo Thinkpad laptop (Windows 7 Professional)
2) Gateway desktop (Windows 7 Home Premium)
3) Some really old Dell desktop used mostly for storing backups (Windows XP)
All I want is to share everything - every single file and folder - between all three computers. Not just "Pictures" and "Documents", not just this or that folder - I mean EVERYTHING, right down to the obscure system files lurking about in the hidden crevices of the operating systems. I want to click on the name of another computer on the network and see the directory structure that I would see if I were sitting at that very computer. And of course, any new files or folders need to be shared automatically.
If I can help it, I don't want to go around assembling Libraries and setting up a HomeGroup, or, god forbid, right-clicking and sharing individual folders one by one. It's such a simple concept; there should really be just one [bleep] checkbox to tick somewhere to just share everything and forever... yet this does not seem to be an easy way to produce for such a set-up. Heck, I'll accept it even if it's way more work than a single checkbox, so long as it's something I only need to do ONCE. Please enlighten me: is there any solution that will make everything available to everyone else on the network?
