Sharing files between a PC running Windows 7 and a Mac running OS X 10.6 is one of the easiest cross-platform file sharing activities, primarily because both Windows 7 and Snow Leopard speak SMB (Server Message Block), the native file sharing protocol Microsoft uses in Windows 7.
Even better, unlike when sharing Vista files, where you have to make a few adjustments to how Vista connects with SMB services, sharing Windows 7 files is pretty much a mouse-click operation.
What You Will Need
- A Mac running OS X 10.6 or later.
- A PC running Windows 7. These instructions should work on the following versions of Windows 7: Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium.
