The files transferred much faster than just plugging the external disk into a USB Port. Thanks a million man. Another question: How do I transfer the files from Windows to the Mac. Is there a list of instructions? What should I see on the iMac? In other words, where do I drag the files? Jackson, I found your instructions clear and easy to follow. I have not transferred anything yet, but I will.
My main concern is transferring wave files into my DAW Workstation. I will let you know how all worked out. I am glad your information is free and I did not have to set up an account.
OS X: Sharing files between Windows and Mac
Thank you sir. Thanks Jackson. Thank you once again for all of this great advice and quickly responding. Are the 2 connected to the same network? If they are, then follow the steps in the article and you're golden. I apologize for my ignorance. No, a direct connection will not work in this instance. You either need to connect to a router or make your Windows PC connect to your Mac wirelessly through an adhoc connection.
Thanks for all the help here. I am a new Mac Pro convert from Windows 7. Can I perform this process with the above procedure and or do you have another outline? Thanks in advance. What are "Wave files"? If you managed to set up the network as shown above, your computers will be linked and will appear in the network.
If you have file sharing enabled in Windows, you will be able to transfer files over. I got a problem for once, i can access my laptop, it's got windows 7, but i can access my mac from my laptop. Any help? Hey, my System Preferences window doesn't have nearly as many options as yours, and so there is no "sharing".
Set up file sharing on the Mac
The closest I've got is "Network". Very helpful post. Worked perfectly for me. I followed your instructions with my Mac with OS Not much of a computer geek here - this sharing of files doesn't go beyond the computers on my home wireless network, right? My wireless network is secure. How can I share the mac files if the windows OS is installed in the sample laptop.
The scenario is I have a mac pro book and I have installed both the mac and windows OS in that. I guess you forgot to mention one important step that is "Select the user account checkbox to On state" after selecting Share files and folders with SMB before clicking Done. I'm not able to login until this checkbox is selected. Also is it possible to use Sharing Only account to access a folder from windows? Since the user accounts shown below share files and folders with SMB contains only NON sharing accounts, it may not be possible.
But is there any other solution please? Hi all, I'm sorry that I haven't responded to the comments quicker.
To those who are having problems, I suggest that you re-check to see if you are within the same network as your Windows counterparts and also, fix the access privileges. But, i can't make the mac visible to the windows machines. Excellent and easy way to share files, went through a few other tutorials before reaching this one and by far the best.
Share OS X Files With Windows Vista
Thanks Jackson!!! When i get back out of town to my ancient quicksilver g4 with tiger on it i will let you know if it works.
I don't have Tiger to mess around with. You could easily turn on Windows Sharing in Tiger but you'll need to enable Windows Access on an account on your Mac running Tiger, meaning that you'll need to log in from the Windows box. Hope that wasn't too confusing. Top Deals. Email Facebook Whatsapp Pinterest Twitter. Enjoyed this article? Stay informed by joining our newsletter! Enter your Email.

PeeCees really don't want to share, and Win help is not. This worked great for me. Really appreciate it; I was pulling my hair out over this. Followed the directions, and it worked! Can you please clarify your question again? For example, if you move an item to a read-only folder, the item becomes read-only as well. Moving an item from a shared folder to an unshared folder means that item is no longer shared with anyone. If you move items only within a shared folder, there is no change to any of the assigned permissions. While you can move shared files, you can't move shared folders on OneDrive.
If you sync OneDrive to your computer, any shared folder you move is copied to the destination location and then removed from your OneDrive. It is still available in your Shared list. If you move a shared folder into another folder, it takes the permissions of the destination folder. This means people can access it only if they also have permissions to the destination folder - if the destination folder isn't shared, then the folder you moved is also not shared anymore.
