I'd like to send a few large image files to a friend over the internet. So, I opened the 'Map network drive' in the 'Tools' tab in the Win explorer, where I typed "\\IP_address\g" . G:\ is a shared drive on my friend's computer. It is an external USB drive.
This did not work. What is the proper way to accomplish this? I don't want access to m friend's computer, just to be able to send a file,.
