Copying Files across network

  mowthecat 11:15 21 Mar 05

I have linked my wife's laptop (XP Home SP2) to my desktop (XP Pro SP2) via ethernet. I can see all the files etc. on the laptop from the desktop but when I try to copy them over for a backup (which is why I set the network up) it only copies the shortcuts, leaving the original files on the laptop. I have had this working successfully in the past before upgrading to SP2 but I can't remember how I did it!

Help please!

Just drag-and-drop by holding down the right mouse button. When the menu comes up, click Copy.
