In order to transfer my files from my old desktop to my new Laptop
I had set up network between my desktop(Home1) and laptop(Home2) by Network set up wizard..I also tried to run file and setting transfer wizard on both of them. Thereafter on going to networkplace on desktop and on clicking view workgroup computers I cannot locate anything however,on clicking MS
Windows Network I can locate dektop icon(Home1) and on laptop can find both computers icons(Home 1 and home 2) , however on clicking (home1 icon) from Laptop to view files of my desktop , a warning is displayed saying that"You might not have permission to use this network resource, the network path is not found;
Doubting hardware may have problem I tried to ping between both computers and it does receives and sends ,ruling out any hardware issues.
Even, I runned file and setting wizard on my dektop , but here again when I select method of transfer as Network it displays your new computer cannot be located.
I cannot figure out where I am going wrong , can anyone guide me please.
Please guide me on how should I proceed to transfer files from my old Desktop to Laptopn by above method.
P.S: Shared folders on both PC's doesn't display file enabled for sharing.
