Sharing Files by Using a File Transferring Tool

Nowadays, it is common to share files between computers. Thankfully, sharing files between two laptops or computers is way easier than you think and you can do it in multiple ways even they are on different networks. Follow the three ways below and transfer files between two computers or laptops.

1. USB Drive or External Hard Drive

Sharing files via a USB drive or External hard drive is an age-old method. However, this way of sharing files and folders is helpful if your need is temporary or if you don’t want to create network sharing, homegroup, etc. Moreover, this method doesn’t need you to be connected to a network. Just connect the USB to your computer and copy the files to it.

2. Sync Files via Cloud Services

You can also use the cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, iCould, etc., to sync your files and folders between two computers. The only downside of this approach is the cloud space is limited and you need to upload your files to the cloud and then download them on the other device. This is not the thing you can enjoy if you have a slow internet connection.

3. Sharing Files by Using a File Transferring Tool

If your two PCs are on different locations or internet, using the file sharing tool for PC is suggested. You also need to prepare an external hard drive or USB. But this method helps you save storage space and time compared with the first method.
